Steeped In History

With a history that dates back as far as 10,000 years, some its earliest known residents include Coahuiltecan, Kiowa, Comanche, Apache, Kickapoo, Caddo, and Tigua people. In 1756, Spanish explorer, Bernando de Miranda y Flores, came to the area called Pedernales, or the stone, meaning the abundant Edwards Chert (flint) that was used by the Native Americans to make tools and arrowheads. He soon began referring to this land as “los balcones” a reference to the dramatic stair-step terrain resembling balconies. The magnificence of this land has long proven to capture the hearts of those that find their way here.

The Origins of the Ranch

Over 150 years ago, German, Swedish and other settlers came to the area known today as Preservation at Peacock, inspired by its wide-open spaces and the opportunity to live a quiet lifestyle with their families and brought them closer to the land. Legend has it that early settlers of the current site of Preservation Ranch, our first community, planted barley along Bee Creek. Historical accounts may support the story since the town of Bee Cave is reported to have had a gristmill in the mid-1880s. By this time a school, church, cotton gin and general store had joined the town’s post office, signaling the start of a growing and enduring community.

It was in the mid-1900s that the land came to be known as Peacock Ranch, purchased by Bill Peacock in 1949. Living in Devine, TX, he had endeavored to find a home in Austin for his family to ensure his children’s quality education, but instead bought the spectacular 2950-acre parcel, a beautiful and historic part of the Texas Hill Country.

The East Peacock Ranch fronts Hamilton Pool Road and is within two miles of both Reimers Ranch County Park and the stunning Hamilton Pool Preserve. Preservation at Peacock sits on the Edwards Plateau, rich with pristine beauty, natural springs, rolling hills and sweeping grassland. Here, you can join the many independent thinkers who came before you in search of an inspired lifestyle. This unique land for sale in the Texas Hill Country is the ideal place to build your legacy on this beautifully preserved and untouched landscape.
