The story of Echo Dell, a magnificent wooded estate that was once a working Texas Longhorn cattle ranch with rolling fields, sylvan woods and wildlife galore. Horses and cattle still roam the pastures while wild turkeys, white tail deer, and foxes are regular visitors. If you have sharp eyes, you may even see hawks and eagles soaring aloft.
