On Wednesday, Aledo school officials will ceremoniously turn dirt to mark the start of construction of an elementary school on the legendary Walsh Ranch in the far west reaches of Fort Worth.
The groundbreaking, though, has a much broader implication. The event signifies the realization that families will soon be living on one of the last remaining large North Texas ranches, where herds of renowned Charolais cattle still roam and the philanthropist Walsh family of Fort Worth runs a successful ranching operation.
Nearby, crews have been scraping land, preparing the once-untouched prairie for streets and 580 home lots, just a portion of what’s to come. Developers estimate the land could one day be home to 50,000 people, roughly the current population of Grapevine.
About 1,700 acres are included in the first development phase of the 7,267-acre Walsh Ranch, which has been held by the family since the 1930s. The property is about 20 miles west of downtown Fort Worth, where Interstates 20 and 30 meet, and straddles both sides of the highway.
This is a day the Walsh family, which also made a fortune in oil, has thought about since the 1970s, and been preparing for since the 1990s.
But all those years of planning don’t make it any easier to watch the ranch begin to be developed, said F. Howard Walsh III.

"Holly was very personable and very helpful. She even came out and walked through our house to help us get it ready to list even though we were wanting to do a sale by owner. She helped us win a bid on a fixer upper that we ended up paying cash for so we could keep our first house as a rental property! She even found a moving company to help the previous owners of our new house move out so we wouldn't be stuck with their heavy furniture! If we are ever in the market for another house, we will definitely call Holly!"
