Fredericksburg, TX

Who Was the Historic Figure Behind Texas Jack Wild West Outfitter in Fredericksburg?

Like thousands of other Texas pioneers, Virginia native John B. Omohundro headed for the Lone Star State after the Civil War, in which he had served as a Confederate scout. He worked as a cook for the Sam Allen Ranch on Buffalo Bayou and as a cowboy on John Taylor’s Bexar County spread, spending about three years living in the state. After leading a cattle drive to Tennessee, Omohundro was dubbed “Texas Jack” by residents of the Volunteer State. The name stuck, making the Virginian a willing ambassador for the sprawling realm between the Red River and the Rio Grande through the rest of his short but thrilling Wild West life and career.

9 Unique And Interesting Places To Stay In Fredericksburg, Texas

It’s known for its wineries, its peaches and berries, and the blocks-long National Museum of the Pacific War. It’s known for its shopping and dining in a charming, brick-fronted downtown area and for Luckenbach, just down the road. But what I love equally about Fredericksburg, a well-loved small-town destination in Texas Hill Country, is how out-of-the-hotel-room-box its accommodations can be.

Austin Travels talks about Castell, Texas

It's a small riverside town west of Llano known mostly for white-tailed deer hunting but Pam LeBlanc says it's about much more than that. It's a nice getaway for some peace and quiet out in the Hill Country.
