Sam Allen's fortunes grew
rapidly after the American Civil War. Through partnerships and
acquisitions Allen's main ranch expanded and he gained ranch lands
in other areas of the state. He established processing plants for
cattle hides and tallow along the Buffalo Bayou near his range as
well as Galveston. The Galveston, Houston and Henderson Railroad was
built through the Allen Ranch in the 1850s and later the Gulf,
Colorado and Santa Fe Railway and the La Porte, Houston and Northern
Railroad. The ranch's docks along the Buffalo Bayou became major
shipping points and helped contribute to the growth of what would
become the Houston Ship Channel. The ranch even had its own private
railway station known as "El Buey."
