Pecan TX Real Estate, Pecan Plantation Area and Community Information

Pecan Plantation, Texas, is a master planned community about 35-miles southwest of Fort Worth. 17-miles of the Brazos River meander around and through the community. The numerous amenities for those that invest in Pecan Plantation real estate include a golf course, tennis, marina, campground and an airpark. The community is also home to the Leonard Farms Pecan Orchard, which covers about 1,500-acres. 


What is today a 4,200-acre residential community virtually surrounded by the Brazos River was once a land occupied by the Comanches. The property came to be known as the deCordova Bend, named for a surveyor who mapped about many areas included in the Republic of Texas at the time. In 1949, a prominent Ft. Worth businessman named O.P. Leonard bought the property with plans to grow pecans and peaches on it. The Leonard Bend Pecan Farm would soon become the second largest pecan farm in the country. Some of the land was then used to build the deCordova Dam, and Lake Granbury was created. The residential community has been developed in various phases beginning in the 1960s. 

Parks and Recreation 

The marina on the Brazos River offers residents easy access to the many recreational activities possible out on the water, including boating, water skiing, fishing, and swimming. Lake Grnabury is known for its largemouth bass, striped bass, crappies and catfish. The equestrian center offers full boarding services and a variety of pastures and trails. Residents also enjoy the clubhouse pool and the newer activity pool. The clubhouse at Pecan Plantation hosts numerous club meetings and social events as well.
