Beneath its peaceful, rolling hills and wooded forests, Spring Creek Park conceals a trove of historical artifacts that tell the stories of times gone by. Precinct 4’s oldest park played a vibrant role in early Texas history. Just 150 to 200 years ago, early American settlers, African Americans, and immigrants from France and Germany worked the land in and around the park, labored at the grist, saw, and flour mills, and even operated a nearby powder mill during the Civil War. The Spring Creek Park Heritage Festival celebrates this rich Texas history.
