PARKER (AP) - The white two-story home with stately pillars overlooking a North Texas pasture where longhorns roam is instantly recognizable: This is the power seat of television’s famous Ewing family.

Tourists from around the world have been flocking to Southfork Ranch in Parker since the early years of the classic series “Dallas,” which ran from 1978 to 1991. The premiere last June of a new “Dallas” series has helped increase the traffic.

Officials with property owner Forever Resorts say the number of Southfork visitors has doubled to more than 300,000 annually.

The new show starts its second season Monday on the TNT cable channel. The November death of actor Larry Hagman, who starred as conniving oilman J.R. Ewing, has also spurred fans to visit Southfork.
