    Find Great Places to Stay, Eat, Play & More in the Mason Area

    Mason, Texas the seat of Mason County, grew under the protection of Fort Mason, one of series of Texas frontier forts.

    Mason is noted for camping, hunting and fishing. White-tailed deer and wild turkey attract hunters each fall and winter; fishing in the beautiful Llano River is a year round sport. Historical interest centers around Indians who once roamed area, a bloody feud known as the Mason County War, and the fort.

    Many homes and businesses are constructed of original-cut sandstone blocks from old Fort Mason. Bluebonnets blanket surrounding hillsides and valleys during spring. There are picturesque rock fences stitched along scenic countryside. Topaz, the state gem, is found in Mason County’s streambeds and ravines. For information about topaz hunts, contact the Mason County Chamber of Commerce.

    Visitors enjoy the historic town square. The quaint Mason County courthouse amid large pecan trees offers an excellent photo opportunity. The restored, historic Odeon Theater features movies and musical entertainment throughout the year.

    Fort Mason – An officers quarters reconstructed on the crest of Post Hill marks location of a fort that commanded a wide view. A number of crumbling foundations still show some sites of 23 original buildings that included barracks, officers quarters, storehouses, stables, a guardhouse and a hospital. Primarily a cavalry post, Fort Mason was duty station for such military figures as Albert Sidney Johnston, John Bell Hood and Robert E. Lee.

    Fort Mason was Lee’s last command in the U.S. Army. From here he was called to Washington where he refused command of the Union army being prepared for the War Between the States. Briefly activated after that war, Fort Mason was abandoned in 1869. The reconstructed building is on its original foundations. The double fireplace foundations are original, and the rock used was from the original building materials of the fort. Fort Mason is on the Texas Forts Trail. It is about five blocks south of the Mason County courthouse.

    The Fort Mason City Park is a 125-acre park with picnicking facilities among large pecan trees, fully equipped RV camping sites, a 9-hole golf course, a rodeo arena, athletic fields, walking trails, and a playscape. It is on U.S. 87 1 mile south of Mason, Texas. Telephone: 915-347-6449
