November 1997 - Eddie Browder Hill

"Eddie Browder Hill" - One of those nicknamed places on the ranch.

It's just an ole hill! Interesting folklore that we tend to lose over time. Along FM 1763 a small, but noticeable bluff crops out from the rolling plains in the McDuff Linecamp. Back in the 50's and 60's during a cattle drive, cowboy Eddie Browder was setting horse back on top of this hill. For at least one family on the ranch this landmark became known as Eddie Browder hill. People come and go and Eddie is no longer with us. He worked for Buster Wharton with his polo horses years ago before moving to Australia.
