All Historical Landmarks in San Saba

  • San Saba Chamber of Commerce

    San Saba Texas is located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country and is widely known as the Pecan Capital of the World.  First explored in 1732 by Spaniards, Anglo-Americans arrived in San Saba in 1839. The county was created in 1856, and is bordered on the North and East by the Colorado River, and crossed by the San Saba River, for which the county is named. Picturesque and functional pecan trees can be found in the many orchards around San Saba County as well as in the yards of homes. Our pecans are shipped worldwide to businesses and individuals from the numerous Pecan Producers in San Saba. The area is also known as a major agricultural area producing wool, mohair, cattle, hogs, and poultry. San Saba is a dynamic community with a diverse range of things to see and do. From our thriving downtown businesses and retail shopping to our many Historic sites and breathtaking wildlife, flowers, and views, there is something for everyone to enjoy while visiting San Saba, Texas.

  • 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.
