The Allen Ranch, or Sam Allen Ranch, was one of the
first and longest running ranches in the history of the state of Texas in
the United States. The ranch was started a few years after the Texas
Revolution in what is now southeast Houston and Pasadena. The ranch itself
extended from Clear Lake to Harrisburg (in modern east Houston). The
cattle range covered much of southeast Harris County and Galveston County
covering many of the modern communities around Galveston Bay.
