Historical Note

Incorporated in 1979, the Millfall Cooperative was a cooperative that formed under the Cooperative Association Act of Texas. The cooperative sought to purchase land in Williamson County which would serve both as a home for its members as well as a natural preserve. In 1985, it disbanded and reorganized as a non-profit organization. All members received one acre of land and were allowed to vote on the cooperative’s resolutions. The board of directors decided to dissolve the cooperative in 1997, selling the land and distributing the assets to its former members.
