Lampasas is a small town on the northeastern edge of the Texas Hill Country. It was established as a permanent settlement in 1850 by John Burleson and was officially incorporated in 1883. The town is home to seven mineral springs, so it was a popular tourist attraction and encampment site in the late 19th century.
The town is only 6.2 square miles, with a population just over 6,000, but don’t let its size fool you. There’s a lot going on in this Hill Country gem! Check out a few things you didn’t know about Lampasas.
