Topography, Rangeland & Habitat
The ranch offers a high hilltop overlooking the creek bottom. Most of the property is rolling topography, giving it great definition and beautiful views. The highest point is about 240 feet above sea level, and the lowest point at the creek is roughly 170 ft above sea level.
At one time, the property was growing organic vegetables in extensive fertile gardens around the property for HEB and Houston restaurants. Because of this, the ranch was high fenced to keep deer and other game from eating the crops. It is ready to go if someone wants to bring exotics or whitetail in.

Mr. Miller was a Texas Pioneer from Virginia; he was a farmer and stockman by trade. He was part of Stephen F. Austin’s Old Three Hundred, and after several years of arriving, he held the position of Sheriff for the community. He was also one of the signers of the petition to establish the Washington Municipality.
