1. Baby Treaty Oak Marker
Inscription. Planted on April 26, 2003, this oak tree is a direct offspring from the famous Treaty Oak in Austin, Texas where Stephen F. Austin is reputed to have signed the treaty establishing the boundary between the Native Americans and the first Anglo settlers of Texas. The original tree came to symbolize the mighty state which it watched develop. This “Baby Treaty Oak” continues that tradition.
