The Ranch in South Texas: The Establishment
Left: Jacal de lena (mesquitejacal) along the Rio
Grande in the early twentieth century. Walls and
thatched roofs were supported by horcones (corner
posts) set vertically into the ground. Courtesy
John E. Conner Museum.
Below: Stone ranchhouse. This casa mayor was
built in the I84os at Rancho San Francisco in
Zapata County. Note the stone bancas around the
house and the troneras (gunports) by each door
and in the center of the facing wall. The hipped
tin roof was added in the 19sos to protect the
house from damage which could be caused by
heavy rains in the area. Courtesy Joe S. Graham.
