Granbury and Hood County are rich in frontier folklore and Texas history. Granbury is a door to yesterday with its Victorian architecture and charming country spirit that celebrates the culturally diverse. You will find that historic preservation has been a priority of our proud community.
The Granbury Courthouse Square became the first in Texas to be added to the National Register of Historic Places, and was the model for the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Program. It has been described as "one of the most complete examples of a late 19th century courthouse square in Texas." The readers of Texas Highways magazine voted Granbury as "The best Town Square in Texas," in 1998.
Our history serves as great attractions for our visitors. The restored 1886 Opera House still is a great venue for live theatrical performances, and the Brazos Drive-in is one of only a handful left in the state.

Heritage passed down from stories lived and told by ancestors of our local citizens create colorful first-person sagas not found in any history book. You can easily imagine a warm summer night when John St. Helen, and J. Frank Dalton swapped stories by a campfire on the banks of the Brazos River. Granbury is rich in these legends and "history's mysteries." You'll find sites and tales surrounding John Wilkes Booth, Jesse James, Davy Crockett, and the hanging tower at the Old Jailhouse. Granbury Cemetery is the resting place for General Hiram B. Granbury; Jessie James; and Ashley Crockett, grandson of Davy Crockett. Our Walking Driving Tour provides visitors with dozens of historic sites that take you back to the sparsely populated, rough-and-tumble frontier of yesterday and Granbury's historic town square teeming with horse-drawn wagons and buggies.
