Owner info

Year Purchased: 1941

About the owner: Elroy Jonas was born and raised in New Braunfels, Texas. Back in the days, he and his family lived on his Great Opa's homestead plantation raising crops and livestock. After months of rain, the family was forced to move to another location, so the Canyon Lake Dam could be built. Today, the Jonas Ranch (est 1940s) is 4th generation!

Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels, TX, USA:
The Jonas Ranch was purchased in the early 1940s and still holds natural wildlife and many breeds of sheep. Spring fed water runs through Purgatory Creek on the ranch and part of the ranch includes the Devils Backbone with breathtaking views from at top.
