  • Risien Park

    Risien Park is a gift from E. Guy Risien and the LCRA that has been outfitted to an 80-acre park space. An old railroad trestle is the entrance to a magnificent pecan grove bordered on one side by the San Saba River and lush trees, picnic sites, grills, pavilion, RV hookups, volleyball courts and an old stone amphitheater. Today the San Saba River Nature Park adjoins Risien Park with an additional 38 acres of greenbelt along the San Saba River featuring two miles of walkways, bridges, bird blinds and fishing stations. Risien Park hosts the annual Catkins Ball fundraiser, in addition to weddings and other events.

  • Madeleine & Me

    Madeleine & Me is a local gift shop selling a blend of shabby and chic, luxury with essential, charming and practical, gift and home wares. Laced with Texas’ welcoming spirit and San Saba’s boutique charms, Madeleine & Me offers seasonal and holiday decor, in addition to local home products, house wares and decor, registry items, confections and gifts. Housed on the historic downtown strip, Madeleine & Me’s roots stem back to 1931 when the building housed the town’s first variety store. In 1953, Charles Little organized the store as the premiere self-service store in Central Texas. It remained a self-service variety store, run by Little’s son until 2006 when it became Sister’s County Store. Opened in 2015, Madeleine & Me carries on the tradition of the space as part variety store, part gift shop.
