Important Admission Update
Until the Welcome Center opens, we have a sign up that says visitors can go to The General Store (located at the corner of 4th St. and Fisher/Hwy. 183) and they will contact a tour guide. We are using the store's availability because they are open 7 days a week.
Admission will be free until the Welcome Center opens (anticipated date is Dec. 15th)

Welcome to Legacy Plaza, a cultural and educational center now under development in the heart of Texas that will honor and celebrate early Native-American history and life and highlight their dependence on the region's native plants and waterways.
Legacy Plaza, consisting of The Texas Botanical Gardens and The Goldthwaite Welcome Center is located on one downtown city block. The Native American Interpretive Center will follow in three years.
Design and construction of the town green and welcome center, funded with a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation in 2010, is underway. A fundraising campaign is in progress to develop The Botanical Gardens, open air Pavilion and museum in three phases. The Grand Opening of the Gardens was Saturday, October 11th, 2014. Museum construction is slated for completion in 2016/2017.
Legacy Plaza Museum Annex, housed in a Sears Craftsman Kit House located three blocks away from Legacy Plaza is currently open to the public.
