Indian Marker Tree 0001

Indian Marker Tree 0001

Burnet County, Texas
30 45.425' N 98 13.885' W T

he story of this tree is a tale of Comanche Indians who roamed through this area in the 1800's. The Indians would camp along Hamilton Creek on their journey to and from the Panhandle to Mexico. In order to mark the better spots along their routes to Mexico they would tie down a sapling in the direction of the camping ground as a reference point for future trips. This tree is one of the few trees left that as a reminder of the Indians who are now gone.

Species: Live Oak (Quercus virginiana)
