History of Granbury Texas and Things to Do:
GRANBURY, TEXAS. Granbury, county seat of Hood County, lies thirty-six miles southwest of Fort Worth on the shore of Lake Granbury on U.S. Highway 377. In 1854 "Uncle Tommy" Lambert and Amon Bond led a group of emigrants, mostly from Tennessee, across the Brazos River to the west bank into traditional Indian territory. That same year, Elizabeth Crockett brought her family from Tennessee to settle on a league of land awarded by the Republic of Texas to heirs of men who fought in the Texas Revolution in 1836. In 1866 brothers J. and J. H. Nutt donated forty acres of riverfront property to form a new townsite, and Hood County was carved out of Johnson and Erath counties and named in honor of Gen. John Bell Hood. The new town was named for Gen. Hiram Bronson Granbury, who led Confederate troops from this area into battle during the Civil War. Three spirited elections were needed to make Granbury the county seat, instead of the older Glen Rose and Fort Spunky further south. The first two courthouses burned, the second one in 1875, at which time Somervell County was demarcated out of Hood County. Granbury's new three-story courthouse was built of Brazos limestone and had a lighted clock tower.
The first public school in Granbury was taught by A. P. Harbin in 1871, the same year that the Methodists established the first church. A year later W. L. Bond founded the first newspaper, the Vidette. This was later taken over by Ashley Crockett, who had come to Texas in 1854. Granbury prospered as the trading center for much of north central Texas, marketing pecans, peanuts, peaches, grains, and cotton. Reunion Park, established in honor of returning Civil War veterans who met annually into the twentieth century, provided an active arena for trading and auctioning livestock. The county fair is held there annually.
When the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railway came through Granbury in 1887, travelers no longer had to ride thirty-five miles north to flag down the Butterfield Stages running from Sherman to El Paso. This rail connection spurred the construction of many buildings, mostly two story and built of limestone. There are thirty-nine such historic buildings in Granbury; many of them are on the courthouse square and house various business establishments. The Old Opera House, built in 1886, is a main tourist attraction, and the old red brick depot of 1887 is now the Genealogical Museum. In the last century these buildings were occupied by several saloons, gun shops, a bank, the sheriff's office and jail, a farm supply store, the Beef Market, and the Granbury House. These outstanding examples of nineteenth-century buildings are identified with state historical markers.
A dam across the Brazos River at De Cordova Bend southeast of Granbury was completed in 1969, forming Lake Granbury. The town responded with new marinas and shopping malls to serve the expanding residential developments along the meandering riverbed. Further growth came with the construction of the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant in the 1980s, which brought in thousands of employees to Somervell and Hood counties. In 1990 Granbury's independent school district listed taxable properties amounting to more than $1 billion. The population in 1990 was 4,045. The fifth annual reunion of the descendants of David Crockett was held in Granbury in 1990. Annual events include the Fourth of July Parade and the Bean Cook Off. In addition to its historic square, Granbury's tourist attractions include facilities for golfing, fishing, and boating. The Granbury Queen, an old paddle wheeler, cruised the lake on weekends until the early 2000s.
Comanche Indians first used the 4,200 acres of land that is now the Pecan Plantation residential community and the Leonard Bend Pecan Orchard as hunting and camping site. Due to the unusual configuration of the Brazos River virtually encircling this peninsula of land, the property has long been a distinctive landmark in North Central Texas.
The property was known as the deCordova Bend, named for Jocob deCordova, a noted surveyor who mapped not only the areas around Hood County, but also many other large areas of the early Texas Republic.
Virtually abandoned for about 50 years following the exodus of the American Indians from the area, the property was finally settled by a communal group of families led to the site by the Kristen’s in the late 1920’s. The community was known as Kristenstad, but by the late 1930’s, the settlement had failed and was abandoned.
In 1949, O. P. Leonard, a prominent Fort Worth businessman, purchased the property with the intention of developing it into a large pecan and peach orchard. By 1956 the Leonard Bend Pecan Farm had 3,300 acres of orchard on the peninsula, and had become the largest contiguous pecan orchard in Texas, and the second largest in the United States.
Part of the Leonard Bend Farm was acquired in 1967 by the Brazos River Authority for the purpose of building the deCordova Dam. The opening of Lake Granbury in 1969 completely changed the dynamics of the area.
Following the development of the deCordova Bend Estates (about 1,000 lots) in 1968, Leonard family members Paul and Bob Leonard, Jim Anthony and Leland Hodges formed Republic Land Company for the purpose of developing the Indian Harbor subdivision on Lake Granbury. Then in 1970 about 800 acres of the Leonard Bend Farm was taken out of the Farm and sold to the Republic Land Company for the purpose of creating Pecan Plantation as a residential community.
The country club, golf course, airport and several recreational areas and parks were opened in 1971, and the Pecan Plantation Owners Association (PPOA) was formed in 1972 by the developers.
In 1978 all assets of the PPOA were conveyed to the property owners by the developers. Lenmo, Inc., a wholly owned Leonard family corporation, retained its ownership of the remaining orchard, and resumed its primary business of pecan production. The Anthony family acquired 100% ownership of the outstanding shares of Lenmo, Inc. from their previous partners in 1988, and continued the operation of the pecan orchard. Today, the pecan orchard consists of approximately 1,500 acres and is an active year round operation.
Pecan Plantation Granbury Texas Real Estate
In 1991 the Anthony’s donated the land required for a second golf course at Pecan Plantation, and the golf course now known as The Nutcracker Golf Club was built by some of the residents of Pecan Plantation. At this time, the Anthony’s resumed the development of additional residential lots around The Nutcracker Golf Course and in various portions of the remaining orchard.
Now, in cooperation with the Owners Association, the Orchard Development Company (a business formed by the Anthony’s for the purpose of continuing the development of the orchard) is now engaged in expanding the existing infrastructure and amenities of Pecan Plantation in preparation for the future growth of the community.
The Pecan Plantation community now consists of about 3,200 residential lots, with approximately 2,500 homes having been built. The developer, Orchard Development Company, and the PPOA have agreed that in the future the total number of developed lots on the original 4,200 acres will not exceed 4500.
The Anthony family and the Pecan Plantation Owners Association are committed to maintaining Pecan Plantation and its unique setting as one of the most outstanding residential communities in the Southwest.
