About Us

Bounded on the north by the National Audubon Society’s Kiowa Creek wild bird sanctuary and Pine Cone Ranch subdivision to the south, Pine Cone Acres was established by Wakonda Western, Inc. as a rural residential area. The development contains 45 tracts of approximately 5 acres each. The original Declared Protective Covenants were established and filed with the County in June 1968. Since that time, the homeowners have assumed responsibility for the operation of the Pine Cone Acres Homeowners Association, forming a not-for-profit corporation in 1995.
