Hill Country Curated – Blanco

 

The lovely community of Blanco is nestled deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.  Named for the limestone bottomed Blanco River, that runs right through town, Blanco is a vibrant and active community. Spring and early summer months bring a host of weekend events and activities to keep just about everyone entertained.

 

The third Saturday of every month you can visit the Old Blanco County Courthouse square for the monthly Market Day and stop inside for a bit of history lesson on the beautiful building and the town in which it stands.  The Courthouse also serves as Blanco’s Visitor Center, where you can pick up information on all the things to do and see, as well as maps and some personal attention to what you most interested about.

 

Blanco has a rich history that can be interactively explored at the Buggy Barn Museum.  Buggies and carriages dating back to the early 1800’s, along with a fashioned old west town and an incredible amount of memorabilia from some of your most favorite western movies; new and old.
