Texas is a rich state. When it comes to the ownership of Texas land, however, it isn’t the state that is rich, because nearly 95% of land in Texas is privately owned. That’s one reason why it was significant when a multi-partner coalition, including Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation, purchased the Powderhorn Ranch along the Texas coast in 2014. The completed transaction only closed at the end of 2021, when the final acreage of the initial purchase was donated to the state. To commemorate its final donation of this pristine coastal tract (over 17,000 acres that will become a Texas State Park in the future), our client TPWF asked SullivanPerkins to design The Promise of Powderhorn Ranch, which was presented to the Foundation’s board of directors last week.
