The Dripping Springs Founder’s Oak

The Dripping Springs Founder’s Oak
Close to the historic Pound House along Route 12 in the charming Hill Country town of Dripping Springs is the Founder’s Oak. This huge oak tree has been a meeting place for the people of Dripping Springs for many years. Dr. Pound’s home is now a well-preserved museum and reenactment center. The tree sits alongside several football fields and a hiking trail weaves walkers through the scrubby vegetation. Football is often the anchor of community life in Texas and the tree has no-doubt seen its share of town gatherings through the years.
