Mo-Ranch

This brochure was designed for the Presbyterian Mo-Ranch Assembly. Mo-Ranch is a conference and retreat center of the four-state Presbyterian Synod of the Sun.

It bears the name of Daniel J. Moran who owned the 6,800 acre ranch for 13 years prior to his death in 1948 and its purchase by Presbyterians in 1949. The State of Texas then bought 6,500 acres from Mo-Ranch to create the Kerr Wildlife Management Area. Through later purchases of adjacent land, Mo-Ranch now encompasses approximately 500 acres.

Mo-Ranch's landmark structure is Manor House, built in 1929 by Houston oilman, O. R. Seagraves. It still contains the distinctive Monterey furniture purchased by Seagraves and included in his sale of the property. Manor House was extensively renovated in 1999.

Part of the brochure design showcased distinctive tiles and wrought iron work used throughout much of the structure
