Crow's Nest Ranch on the Old Spanish Trail
FINE ART AND HISTORY ON A FAMILY RANCH
Ft. Davis gallery owner, artist Roxa Medley Robison ranches the same Davis Mountains terrain her pioneer ancestors settled over a century ago.
The ranch begins sixteen miles SW of Fort Davis, Texas. Its rugged sections spill across the mountains cut by the Davis Mountains Scenic Loop, Texas Highway 166, which follows the old Butterfield Overland Trail. This historic trade route between El Paso and San Antonio includes part of the Comanche War Trail. Conquistadors traveled the region long before Pilgrims landed in the New World. Native Americans lived and hunted these mountains for thousands of years before Big Bend country became a tourist destination.
Roxa and her family are proud of their land's rich heritage. This unique Ft. Davis gallery, hidden high in the mountains in the Old Spanish Trail art complex on Crow's Nest Ranch 16 miles SW of historic Fort Davis and a mile N of Scenic Loop166 is one way of preserving and sharing rich traditions passed down with the land.
A gallery visit offers you the opportunity to visit a working cattle ranch located on the historic trade route through Far West Texas.
Welcome to the last frontier!
