First Anglo-American Texas Ranch

James Taylor White established the first Anglo-American ranch in Texas. White is thought by many to be responsible for the establishment of the longhorn cow in the third oldest town in Texas, Liberty, and southeastern part of Texas. James Taylor White did establish the first cattle trail in Texas known as the “Opelousas Trail.” The “Opelousas Trail” began in Liberty when White drove his cattle to the markets in Opelousas, Louisiana.
