Doug Box gives the Inside Scoop on what it was like growing up on the original Southfork Ranch at Les Femmes du Monde Soup and Salad

Taking the stage, Doug Box dimmed the lights and began his presentation speaking about his childhood home in Frisco, then called the Box Ranch, which was the original home used by the Dallas television series in its first season’s first five episodes. It is now the Brinkmann Ranch and you can see the house from south of Main Street off of Preston Road on the east side.

He introduced his family through the presentation, including his father, Cloyce Box, the storied patriarch and entrepreneur thought by many to be the inspiration for Dallas’ J. R. Ewing, his mother, Fern, older brothers and stories about growing up on the ranch and riding his favorite cutting horse, Cutter Frisco.
