The Driftwood Historical Conservation Society was formed to conserve the Driftwood, Texas William B. Travis Heritage Trail.
The location, natural beauty and character of Hays County have resulted in a significant increase in the population of Hays County, and this growth is projected to continue. We welcome new residents of Hays County, and we must accommodate this population increase. However, improvements made to date have eliminated features and sites that formed and were the character of Hays County. This character of Hays County is not only our history but also our future. The beauty of Hays County has served to create a thriving wine industry, bed and breakfast/resorts, restaurants and active heritage-tourism trade that appreciates Hays County as it exists today. The nature of Hays County may change, but segments must be preserved out of respect for our past, the heritage-tourism economic engine of today, and the benefit of future generations.
The DHCS aligns the Driftwood/Onion Creek Valley with Dripping Springs regarding the International Dark Sky Initiative, because we believe it is critical in preserving the environmental natural history in the entire region.
