Explore the Beautiful Texas Hill Country

Cat Spring is located in Austin County, and is one of the first German/American settlements in Texas. It’s home to Texas’ first agricultural society and its vintage wooden hall is the site of an annual antiques fairs each April and September. While a short drive from the city, it is truly a world away!

If you want to explore the surrounding Texas Hill Country, the area is rich in Texas historical attractions and activities near Houston, including the Stephen F. Austin and Washington-on-the-Brazos State Parks. Enjoy shopping the antique stores in Bellville or Sealy and soak in the small-town charm and country relaxation. Tour the countryside to see wildflowers or plan a day on the links at one of the nearby golf courses.
