The Chinati Ranch derives its name from the Apache word ch'íná'itíh which translates into gate or mountain pass. The ranch is 11,825± deeded acres and 1,940± acres of surface lease for a total of 13,714± acres all in Presidio County. It is entirely Chihuahuan Desert and meanders roughly 11+ miles along the Rio Grande River in the foothills of the Chinati Mountain Range. The ranch is 26 miles from Presidio, TX and the same distance to Ojinaga, Mexico. Dining, services and an FBO are available 56 miles away in the iconic cowboy and cultural oasis of Marfa. Commercial air travel is available via the El Paso International airport 225 miles to the northwest. Chinati, TX is an unincorporated ghost town that began as a Mexican mining village with cotton and vegetable farming along the river. A post office was established in 1922 and stopped operation in 1939. There are remnants of a church and adobe buildings still found on site. The views are absolutely stunning with fantastic rock formations on both sides of the border. The ranch has varied terrain from flats, ocotillo forest, riparian river bottom, rock formations, cliffs and canyons, all culminating into an aesthetically attractive property. There are two solar pumps and associated drinkers to provide the wildlife water year-round. There is a healthy mule deer population on the property along with aoudad, javelina and the occasional mountain lion. Blue and Gambel’s quail are also permanent residents. Far removed from a fast-paced world, Chinati Ranch is a blank canvas where recreational opportunities abound in the unique Chihuahuan Desert ecosystem of Far West Texas.
