In 1880, Captain Charles Schreiner began parceling the legendary Y.O. Ranch in Kerr County, Texas together, which became the headquarters for Schreiner Cattle Company. Comprised of 29,000 acres, the ranch is notable for many firsts, including leasing land for hunting to provide income, establishing a registry for Texas Longhorns that brought the legendary breed back from the brink of extinction, and for introducing exotic hoofstock that earned the ranch a reputation world-wide as America’s Original Game Ranch.
Guests have ranged from Paris Hilton to Johnny Cash to the Shah of Iran, according to Robert Dullnig of Kuper Sotheby’s Realty in San Antonio, which has the listing. “You’re selling such a piece of Texas history. Not only is it a great story, but it’s a great piece of land in a highly desirable county,” says Dullnig.
