THE PARKS-BELL VISION FOR WEST TEXAS.
A LEGACY IN THE PERMIAN BASIN.
A PIONEERING VISION
Today, in a thriving Odessa, the Parks Bell Ranch is creating an environment for all west Texans to enjoy, while preserving traditions for generations to come. Thoughtful open spaces, new public schools and places neighbors to call home are being developed. This is the place where Texans can be close to home or close to the office. This is a new concept for the bustling Permian Basin. Pioneering? Indeed.
A LIVING LEGACY
Together, the Parks Bell family has been kind neighbors - carrying on a legacy of love for ranching that began nearly a century ago. With a shared passion for the west Texas land, Ellen (Parks) and Larry Bell, who continue to actively develop the market in Midland, continue to take great care in ranching. Indeed, they are credited with pioneering breeding programs used today to produce superior quality quarter horses. As a matter of fact, from the 1930's to the 1990's, the Parks family devoted their lives toward progress in America's livestock industry, particularly Hereford cattle.
A PIONEERING SPIRIT
The Parks Bell Ranch has deep west Texas roots. The Parks Bell Ranch was lovingly established in 1918 by Roy Parks senior, a west Texas rancher who devoted his life and expansive land toward progress in America's livestock industry. A founding member of the American Quarter Horse Association, and revered leader in cattle ranching for nearly fifty years, his dedication and service has truly made a mark in the Permian Basin - past and present.
