Cinco Ranch Southwest TX History

During the 1930s, Cinco Ranch was owned by Bassett Blakeley, a cattleman who owned some 15,000 acres of land. In 1937, Blakeley sold the working cattle ranch to five oilmen (W. Wheless, J.S. Abercrombie, W.B. Pryon, H.G. Nelms and L.M. Josey).

Among the five, only the Wheless family settled in the ranch. The other families visited during the holidays and weekends. The families maintained the ranch’s operations, which by then included rice and peanut production.

In 1984, Cinco Ranch Venture, made up of US Home, American General Corporation, and the Mischer Corporation, moved to purchase Cinco Ranch. The land changed hands a few more times, finally going to Newland Communities in 2003.

During the same period, Newland Communities purchased additional parcels west of Grand Parkway, adding 1,328 acres more to Cinco Ranch. In 2010, the developer bought 492 acres more.

Today, Cinco Ranch covers an 8,092-acre area. The newer additions to the community, including Cinco Ranch Northwest and Cinco Ranch Southwest, are also called Cinco II. Both communities are under the same homeowners association, Cinco Ranch Residential Association II.
