Before Liberty Hill was known for its State Champions, the fightin’ Panthers, it was a small community built by farmers and ranchers who settled the area between the North and South forks of the San Gabriel River. Today locals enjoy the rolling Texas Hill Country, swimming in crystal clear waters, hiking and camping, farmers markets, area wineries and breweries and the many festivals and events only a small town can offer.
One of the biggest attractions to Liberty Hill is a sculpture garden containing some of the best work from Mel Fowler and international sculptors. The International Sculpture Symposium took place in the fall of 1976 in celebration of the United States Bicentennial. Liberty Hill residents hosted 25 sculptors from six countries and these time-worn monuments stand today for all to see.
Another must see attraction is the historic Fort Tumbleweed. For over 30 years, Len and Lynda Kubiak have collected 16-acres worth of old, historic buildings and relics. The buildings and relics date back to the 1850’s.
Indian Mound Ranch established in 1873 and stand to be one of the last Texas Century Ranches in the area, is home to Market Days, which feature local farmers, craftsman, artisans, bakers, businesses and food trucks.
