Stanley Springer and Neil Turner have installed another Rockwall County Historical Foundation Farmstead Landmark sign at the Wallace native prairie meadow on Cullins Road between Wallace Lane and Lofland Circle.
The Wallace Farmstead, originally a 280 acre tract, was designated as a Texas Family Land Heritage property in 1984. The land has been continuously used for cattle grazing and cotton or hay production by the Wallace family since the 1880’s.
The 45 acre meadow was never plowed or pastured and provides a rare remnant of native grasses. Less than one percent of the original 20 million acres of grassland remains in Texas.
