The Panhandle Region of Texas was the last area of the state settled before the turn of the 19th century, and Mobeetie was the first established town in the Texas Panhandle. Originally a buffalo hunter’s camp, Mobeetie became a trading post protected by nearby Fort Elliott. Truly an old west town, Mobeetie offered merchandise stores, blacksmith, livery stables, a total of 9 saloons, and was known for buffalo hunters, soldiers and gamblers. Noted figures that visited the town included Bat Masterson, Pat Garrett and Texas Ranger and ranching pioneer, Charles Goodnight. Temple Houston, youngest son of Sam Houston, resided in Mobeetie serving as the first district attorney in the area. Originally called Sweetwater, the name of the town was later changed to Mobeetie, thought to be the Indian name for Sweetwater.
The landscape of the ranch consists of rolling native grass and improved pasture, with Sweetwater Creek located in the northeastern area of the ranch. Portions of the property at one time were in farmground and have now been planted to permanent improved grasses. Tree-lined shelterbelts provide cover for wildlife and good cover and shade for livestock. Areas of the ranch have shinery oak providing good browse for deer.
