The Jobe ranch is 167± acres at the southeast corner of IH-10 east and FM 794 south between San Antonio and Houston. This property has great investment potential given it’s ample amount of frontage and visibility on IH-10 east and also FM 794. There are great views with over 70’ of elevation change and a mix of trees including post oak and mesquite. There are also large established coastal fields that just need a little weed killing and fertilizer.
This ranch has been in the same family since the 1800’s and is being offered for sale for the first time since then. Prior to the Jobe ranch ownership, the ranch was originally owned by HF McKenna, who was a New Orleans shipping tycoon, and then later owned by TW Peirce, who was a Boston Railroad tycoon who formed the Galveston Harrisburg and San Antonio Railway, later known as the Sunset Route that ran from New Orleans to California. Peirce completed the Sunset Route in 1883 by driving a silver spike at the Pecos River rail bridge. The ranch was then purchased in 1883 by I.E. Jobe who owned a general mercantile store in Harwood, TX called Jobe and Lum and has been in this same family ever since.
