By 1870, 75,000 head of cattle roamed the open prairies of Gonzales County. Many local herds combined with cattle originating further south and east, and passed through on their trek north up the Chisholm Trail. After joining one of those drives, local Civil War veteran George Littlefield made his name and fortune buying and selling land and cattle throughout the Southwest.

Step back into the Western frontier at the Gonzalez Pioneer Village Living History Center – a collection of homes and buildings dating to the days of the town’s settlement and the great cattle drives. Visitors can step inside a horse barn, blacksmith shop, granary, saloon, church building, and more.
