History: The Valdina Ranch is rich in history. Mr. E. F. Woodward established the ranch after finding wealth in the Texas oil industry. His grandson, Robert R. Woodward, took over the ranch after his death and continued to develop the ranch. The property was originally part of a Spanish land grant in the Castro Colonies. Two brothers supposedly lived on the ranch and operated a mine. Local stories had them hiding treasures, but the location was lost forever because they were killed by Indians.
Improvements: The ranch has a partial high fence.
