Originally,three fourths of the state of Texas was covered by prairie and savanna. The tallgrass prairies covered 20 million acres. Today these tallgrass prairies have been reduced to less than one percent of those original 20 million acres.

The tallgrass prairie is a proud part of our heritage. In an effort to preserve this beautiful, vanishing ecological system, Mr. Hirschi made a commitment to preserve and restore the Decker Road property to its natural prairie character.

The Prairie settlers of the past had many “common sense” practices in their architectural design and their use of energy. Rainwater collection, cisterns for water storage, solar orientation for heat protection and breezes, along with generous overhangs, and strategically placed window openings all worked to provide comfort and improved livability. Many of these ideas are again in vogue and known as “green or sustainable” practices. Keeping with these ideas and the incorporation of new technologies, we have developed the basis for The Prairie’s Sustainable Guidelines.

Master Plan

The Prairie is a 200-acre development in Archer County near Wichita Falls, Texas, whose goal is to maintain and enhance the beauty and ecological processes of the restored mixed prairie native to this region of the United States. The large lot community embraces green building concepts and promotes the conservation of energy, land, water, and resources thorough appropriate site and building design, construction, and maintenance. The principles that guide The Prairie’s development includes minimizing land disturbances, protecting natural resources, optimizing solar orientation, using storm water runoff on-site, creating neighborhood connectivity, developing passive recreation areas, and managing the restored prairie.

The community is a comprehensive neighborhood of streetscapes, quality built residences, and related site improvements that reflect an elegant but casual outdoor lifestyle. The development, as a whole, is designed to respect The Prairie landscape. In addition, each building and lot stands on its own design merit and contributes to the desired neighborhood character. Thus, the compatibility, long-term quality, and appreciation of value of the original investments and the overall community are optimized. Each proposed new home addition or improvement, including site improvements and landscaping, is designed and reviewed for consistency and/or compatibility with the appropriate character outlined in these Sustainable Guidelines.


The Prairie is located just 10 minutes from Wichita Falls, Texas off of FM 1954 on Decker Road.
