Established in 1849, this seat of Burnet County grew around frontier Fort Croghan. It is one of the most ancient geological areas of the world, 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 city is a year-round tourist destination, and it was named Bluebonnet Capital of Texas by the 67th Texas Legislature. It is known for beautiful displays of wildflowers each spring. 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.
