Established in 1849, this Burnet County seat grew around frontier Fort Croghan. It is an ancient geological area, featuring an outcropping of granite and the famous Longhorn Cavern. Nearby White Bluff--on F.M. 2341 off Texas 29, about 15 miles northwest--is characterized by beautiful formations created by running and dripping water.
The town was designated the Bluebonnet Capital of Texas for its spring wildflower displays. The annual Bluebonnet Festival is held the second weekend in April. Antiques shopping is available on the historic square. Camping facilities and excellent fishing are available on the nearby Highland Lakes.
