According to legend, Stephen F. Austin and local Native Americans signed peace treaties at this site, featuring the last of the Council Oaks. In 1991, the tree was poisoned, and a large section died. Support from the community brought an outpouring of gifts and experts to help save North America's most perfect tree specimen. But even with only one-third of the massive tree surviving, it is still a fantastic living statue to Texas history.
