c.1906

In the early 20th Century, Lawrence H. (L.H.) Jones drove cattle from ranch land in Scurry County to the Texas and Pacific railhead at Colorado City, Texas. From there the cattle were shipped to the Fort Worth stockyards.

This barn was built in about 1906 at the end of the cattle drive years. Jones used the barn ad adjacent pens to rest cattle during the years before the Santa Fe railroad came to Snyder in 1911.

The Jones family came to early Scurry County as homesteaders, settling on about 700 acres. One of the Jones daughters married a Hoffman, and the land where the barn was built has stayed in the Johnny Hoffman family since that time.
