Gainey Ranch began as an Arabian horse ranch owned by Daniel C. Gainey. Gainey made a fortune selling school class rings. He used that wealth to pursue his interest in breeding horses, particularly of which he focuses on the Arabian breed.
Markland Properties purchased the all but 80 acres of the property in 1980 and began development of the master planned community in the mid-1980’s. The family initially held on to 80 acres for a place to stable their Arabian horses for the Annual Arabian Horse Show, but the family trust would later develop it into commercial and further residential use.
Over the years, three Daniel Gainey’s would own the ranch. The original Morrish-Style Gainey family house used to entertain politicians, movie stars, and other well to do folk that were drawn to the horse show. This home still stands and is used as the Daniel C. Gainey Estate Club.
