The Pecos National Historical Park that we know today exists in large part due to the generosity and support of Greer Garson Fogelson and her husband Col. E.E. “Buddy” Fogelson.  The Fogelsons owned and operated the Forked Lightning Ranch for 50 years.  In 1991, Garson sold her ranch parcel to The Conservation Fund, which donated it to the National Park Service.  She and her husband were honored with the Conservation Service Award, the Department of the Interior’s highest civilian award.
