Park Amenities

Founder’s Park is the site where Williamson County’s first commissioners met under an oak tree in 1848 to choose a location for the county seat. George Washington Glasscock offered to donate the land he owned jointly with his business partner Thomas B. Huling. The land was bounded by the oak tree at one corner and the San Gabriel River to the north and west. The oak tree was felled by a storm in 1886, but the park remains an important reminder of Georgetown’s history.
