Ranch Buildings at Sauceda, Big Bend Ranch State Park

Tack Room and Bunkroom in Sauceda
in Big Bend Ranch State Park and the corrals,
still used today

The historic ranch at Sauceda in Big Bend Ranch State Park has many intact features, including the corrals (yes, they still have horse there!) and the Tack Room and Bunkroom building, which is used for storage today
Wool barn at Sauceda, built in the 1940s.  At their peak
production in 1955, the Fowlkes brothers sold more than
200,000 pounds of wool, "the biggest clip in Texas"
