  • Is there a fun historical fact about the land on which your community sits?

    When developers arrived on the former Eppright homestead for their first look at the Wildhorse land, they were startled by the appearance of a large black stallion. The horse held their gaze for a moment before galloping off into the landscape. On return visits, they looked for the majestic animal, but he never reappeared.

    A little research revealed that the dark stallion had a strong connection to the land, belonging to the very first builder to claim these rolling hills — Colonel George J. Eppright. Born into a family of early innovators, he lived on the cutting edge as a military pilot in the Experimental Engineering Test Division of the United States Army Air Corps.

    Upon his retirement, Col. Eppright continued his bold legacy of adventure by establishing a homestead on hundreds of acres in eastern Travis County, carving out a satisfying life of farming, ranching and philanthropy. While he passed in 1998, Eppright’s legend lives on in this mystic tale.

    When he was no longer able to ride, the Colonel released his final and favorite horse – a magnificent black stallion – to pasture on his vast expanse of land. The horse remained out of sight for years, and following Col. Eppright’s death, the land was offered for sale. That’s when the developers visited Wildhorse and were welcomed to the land by the Colonel’s proud steed. No trace of him has ever been found – after paying his respects to the new masters of the land, he simply vanished. Today, the Wildhorse community is proud to uphold the legacy of the land in name, beauty and spirit.

  • If you could go in the future and hear one of your buyer's kids describe their childhood memories in the community, what would they be saying?

    I loved growing up on my house on the hill. My friends were from all over the world. We would walk to Lake Walter E. Long to play on the boardwalk. Every Friday we would go out to sample the local cuisine – my favorite was Maxine’s Gumbo House. On weekends we would take our rescue pit bull, Tater Tot for a walk on the trails – he loved to frolic in the ponds. Our home was super contemporary house and did not look like grandma’s home. My bedroom was huge and had high ceilings. I loved growing up here – “wild horses couldn’t drag me away!”
