Zollner's "Hobo Ranch"
Photograph Collection, 1971
8 copy prints
Consists of photographs of Henry Zollner's family and his "Hobo Ranch" in Rockwall County, Texas (1971).
Massey Zollner and his wife, Elizabeth, established a ranch near Fate, Texas, in Rockwall County in 1876. Immigrants from Germany by way of Australia, the Zollners soon developed a successful cotton crop on 320 acres of North Texas land. For labor, they hired men of every trade who were temporarily unemployed. Because of this practice, their place became known as "Hobo Ranch."
