First, there were the courts. Heirs to the orginial rough-and-tumble cowboys founders Don Waggoner and W.T. Waggoner had sparred for years over the property. Then there was the price tag. To keep the property off the auction block, Bernie Uechtritz from Icon Global Properties and Sam Middleton of Chas Middleton and Associates put the number at a cool $725 million. For this land was more than just farmland. It was a land imbued with a legendary history, filled with the Lone Star's tradition and folklore, prosperity and ruin. Word had it W.T.
