Southfork Ranch

History at Southfork began in 1978, when Lorimar Productions chose the North Texas showplace as the site for the CBS-TV series "Dallas". The hit series, which counted millions of viewers across the United States and in 95 foreign countries as fans, was originally broadcast in the United States from 1978 to 1991. The series continues to be broadcast in syndication and still is in first-run status in many countries around the world. Because of the ranch's high profile on television, the beautiful white mansion, the pool, the barns and surroundings quickly became a tourist mecca.

The original owner of the ranch and his family were actually in residence at Southfork as the filming began. When requests for private parties began to pour in, tents were erected and a small party pavilion was built to accommodate these types of events. However, tourism finally took its toll on the family, as it became increasingly hard to live privately in what had become Dallas' leading visitor attraction.

In 1985, Southfork became strictly a tourist attraction and event location. The mansion was opened to the public for the first time. A 63,000 square foot conference and event center was built to accommodate several thousand people for special events and functions. A rodeo arena, which was originally constructed for the filming of "Dallas" rodeos, began to host open competition rodeos as well as private "showdeos."

In June of 1992, Mr. Rex Maughan, a successful Arizona businessman with extensive company operations in Texas, purchased the ranch. Since Mr. Maughan's purchase, business has continued to grow. Tourists are still attracted to the nostalgia of "Dallas" and Southfork's unique facilities have created an internationally respected conference and event center for meeting planners.

Today, Southfork continues to welcome visitors from around the world, who come to see where "Dallas" was filmed and to experience the lifestyle made famous by the Ewings.

Whether you are an individual traveler or part of a group tour, Southfork is open daily, 'year round for guided tours of the ranch. Tour the famed Ewing Mansion and re-live exciting moments from the series in the "Dallas Legends" exhibit, featuring an exciting array of memorabilia from the series.

In 1978, a legend was created. Accumulating millions of fans over the years, an unknown Texas ranch soon became world-renowned. The series was "Dallas," the family the Ewings, and the ranch that was home to it all was Southfork.

Welcome to the Legendary Southfork Ranch, made famous by the Ewing Family in the television series Dallas! We are now a premier special events venue and meeting destination in the Dallas Metro Area. With 63,000 square feet of event space, each year we hos
