Bob Jones Nature Center

in Ecotourism, City

The City of Southlake’s Bob Jones Park and the Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve (BJNCP) are named after John Dolford “Bob” Jones, the son of Leaser Alvis Jones and his slave, Elizabeth. A slave himself, Bob was a sheepherder on his father’s farm east of Roanoke, Texas. After the Civil War, Bob, his brother, and his mother were set free and bought the 60-acre farm. Over time, Bob and his wife, Almeady Chisum, and their ten children expanded the farm until they owned almost 2,000 acres.
