Monarch Ranch

On the Cover: Monarch Ranch

The Monarch Ranch is located in a historically rich section of Val Verde County. Following Texas’ independence from Mexico in 1836, John Coffee Hays is the first American recorded to visit Val Verde County in an effort to establish a road from San Antonio to El Paso in 1848. During his time tracking the road, he renamed the San Pedro River the Devils River, to fit with the difficult terrain.
