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 29,000Â± 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 hoof stock 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 Sothebyâ€™s Realty in San Antonio, which has the listing. â€œYouâ€™re selling such a piece of Texas history. Not only is it a great story, but itâ€™s a great piece of land in a highly desirable county,â€ says Dullnig.
