Liendo Plantation was built in 1853. Originally a Spanish land grant of 67,000 acres and one of Texas' earliest cotton plantations. Liendo was the social center of Texas receiving and lavishly entertaining early Texas dignitaries and notorieties. Liendo is recognized as a Texas historic landmark, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It was also the home of world-renowned sculptor Elizabet Ney.

During the War Between the States, Liendo hosted Cavalry and Infantry Training Camps, an Internment Camp, and a Hospital. For a brief time after the War, it served as headquarters for General George Armstrong Custer.
