For millions of years the Rio Grande River, in Central New Mexico, has been working to create the perfect mix of year around living, fantastic views, productive cattle country, wonderful hunting, and fishing. With a rich variety of landscape reaching from the river at 4,418 feet to the foothills of the San Mateo Mountain at 5,300 feet. The mix of high desert to a thick bosque along the far North end of Elephant Butte Reservoir.

The Apaches drifted through this country for hundreds of years and in the 1500s the Spanish moved through as the sought the 7 Cities of Cibola. In the mid 1800s the area became the Territory of New Mexico, United States of America. During the Civil War the area hosted General Sibley, CSA as he first captured the area on behalf of the Confederate States and then withdrew to El Paso, ending the War in the West.

Shortly after the war ranchers from Texas moved in and developed the business that remains on the land today. The drainage to the North of the ranch was named after Captain Jack Crawford, one of the cavalry officers at Ft Craig, just to the North of the property.
