Kingsville, Texas, and the King Ranch

Founded on July 4, 1904, Kingsville was celebrating it's centennial year when we were there. The town was established on land donated by Mrs. Henrietta King, of King Ranch, the most famous working cattle ranch in America. Kingsville is the seat of Kleberg County and a center for agriculture, oil, banking hunting and fishing. Texas A&M University Kingsville and Naval Air Station Kingsville are also here.

    As a birdwatcher, Kingsville is up high on my list. As you said, South Texas is a mecca for the birds. : )

    I know Kingsville for their football team and the NAS having friends who have attended that fine establishment. It is nice to be filled on the rest of the story;-]

    I went to Missouri with deecat, and she told me to look you up because you were good. And is she right? YES. Excellent. My favorite was the museum.

    Great intro photo! Quarter horses, Texas long horns are terrific. I learned a new fact--about the Santa Gertrudis Cattle. Thanks. Your detail is so helpful to travelers. Great restaurant. Your work is superior.
