King is the name of the game in this company town, which is the direct result of the fabled 825,000-acre King Ranch, an operation that stretches across four Texas counties. Former riverboat captain Richard King established the ranch in 1853 on land that others saw as a scrub-covered semidesert. King saw scrub-covered semidesert with the only natural springs for hundreds of miles. Today the ranch is bigger than Rhode Island, a state that the ranch's fences would reach if they were laid end to end.
