Travis Trail Designation Ceremony

On September 4, 2019, the Driftwood/Onion Creek Valley community celebrated the designation of the Section of RM 150 W between the intersections of RR 12 and RR 3237, the William B. Travis Heritage Trail at the Hays City Store and Icehouse in Hays City Texas. The jamboree celebrated the road’s designation and our community’s successful efforts to manifest our dream into a beautiful reality.

This section of road includes an association with one of Texas’s heroes, William Barret Travis, whose land grant straddles Onion Creek. The Driftwood Historical Conservation Society (DHCS) petitioned the Texas Legislature to designate part of Ranch-to-Market Road 150, which runs through the William B. Travis Survey, as the William B. Travis Heritage Trail.

Residents, politicians, and the Hays County Commissioners Court and the Historical Commission were among those who enthusiastically lent their support. By May 23, 2019, Senate Bill 1221 had passed both houses of the Texas Legislature with more than a two-thirds majority and was enrolled, guaranteeing passage into law.

DHCS’s proactive leadership joins with the community to preserve and enhance Driftwood and the Onion Creek Valley’s rural beauty, heritage, sense of community and belonging. One of our goals is “preserving/restoring historical and heritage sites.”

Manifesting the Travis Trail into reality fulfills this vision.
