5 Reasons to Love Liberty Hill
For such a small, quaint Hill Country town, Liberty Hill punches above its weight when it comes to things to do – cultural, culinary and otherwise. Here are our Top 5 reasons to love this hometown!
Whether it’s Chicken Fried Steak or a mile-high pie, Dahlia Cafe specializes in homemade, dressed-up country cooking, with a side of live music on Saturday nights. You can eat inside the old farmhouse, or dine outside under the oaks. Either way, try your hand at pitching washers before leaving.
Liberty Hill Sculpture Garden
Home to 25 larger-than-life sculptures created by artists from six countries in 1976. Adjacent to Liberty Hill Intermediate School, Liberty Hill Sculpture Garden is a testament to the Texas traditions of thinking big and treating folks like neighbors. With no outside funding, residents hosted the visiting artists in their homes and cooked meals for them.
Described as an “authentic Old West Town,” Fort Tumbleweed has been developing over the past 30 years, as the owners have moved a variety of Old West era buildings to this 16-acre site, complementing the original buildings on the original 1850s Bryson homestead. Twelve historic buildlings are now on the site, housing Old West relics and fossils. Group tours are offered by appointment.
Downtown Liberty Hill
Founded in 1850, Liberty Hill has a charming downtown filled with historic buildings. In its earliest days, the town was a small village along a military highway known as Comanche Trace. As pioneers continued to travel to Liberty Hill, it received its first post office in 1853 and its current name.
Described as a “true old-fashioned, homegrown local business,” Hobo Junction serves up everything from French toast and breakfast tacos, to Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes and fried okra. Nothing fancy, but draws rave reviews.
