In 1992, a 18,327-square-foot home sitting on 43 acres of land in Pittsburg, Texas, was built for billionaire Lonnie Alfred "Bo" Pilgrim.

Pilgrim cofounded Pilgrim's Pride, which used to be one of the largest suppliers of poultry products in the world, with his brother Aubrey in 1946, growing it from a small feed store in Pittsburg and turning it into a global powerhouse after Aubrey's 1966 death. Eventually, the company became a supplier for major brands like Walmart, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Wendy's.
