World’s Largest Branding Iron

Saves: 12
Check-ins: 11
This 22-foot-long, 3,000-lb length of steel with an XIT logo on its branding side commemorates the ranch's history in Vega. It all started in 1885 when three million acres of land were used to raise 150,000 head of cattle over the next three decades. The branding iron is right next to two other Vega landmarks - the Milburn-Price Culture Museum and the Magnolia Gas Station. (Submitted by Rick Boales)
