Nestled between North Texas and the Upper Hill Country, Granbury is one of Texas’ hidden gems. Founded in 1860, the town was named after the Granbury’s Texas Brigade’s commanding officer in the Confederate States Army, Brigadier General Hiram B. Granbury. As a frontier town, Granbury has attracted colorful characters and has earned the motto of “Where Texas History Lives.” This motto is clearly evident in the town’s beautifully preserved Square, which is home to the grand Hood County Courthouse, which takes center stage and is surrounded by charming 19th century storefronts. Explore the town’s rich heritage at its more than 40 historic sites, watch history come alive with a re-enactment of Western scenes by the Historic Granbury Gunslingers, or kick back to some live local music in the evenings on the square. All of which is within a short stroll from the Inn on Lake Granbury. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.
