Val Verde County was organized by the Texas Legislature in 1885 and is one of the largest counties in Texas and the only one named for a Civil War battle. Through the late 1800's and early 1900's this county was dominated by the railroad and ranching. Water resources of this future county provided necessities supporting the San Antonio-El Paso Road (roughly over 500 miles through the driest parts of Texas). By linking El Paso to the rest of Texas, Val Verde played a role in establishing the state's boundaries in that distinctive Texas shape.
Val Verde Co.'s recorded history goes back long before 1885. Ancient nomads traveled and lived along the numerous canyons. The ranch is located near two significant natural formations; the Devils River and Pecos River and the man made formation of Lake Amistad. Outdoor enthusiasts could spend hours in any one of the Jarrett Juno Ranch canyons, vistas and plateaus exploring, biking, birding and hunting. Come visit by appointment to see for your self.
