The committee met numerous times over the past year focusing on three goals - 1) define the boundaries of the Driftwood Core and Driftwood Area of Influence, 2) develop a sign to denote entry points into the Driftwood Core Area and 3) Locate, photograph, describe and publish local historical sites.

The Area Designation\Historical Committee has completed development of a Driftwood Core Area Map and a Driftwood Area of Influence Map. The Driftwood Core Area Map is a compilation of the Driftwood zip code and the proposed Winery Appellation. The outer portion of both of these areas defined the Driftwood Core Area.
The Driftwood Area of Influence is defined by the headwaters and watershed that flows water to Onion Creek until it reaches RR 150 or the Hays County line. Both of these maps are available on the What is Driftwood? page.
the committee has developed a sign which has been placed at six entry points to the Driftwood Core Area. The sign announces entrance to Driftwood and encourages "Natural Sites and Starry Nights" to promote residents desire to retain as much of the natural beauty as possible as development occurs.
Our next step is to gather data on historical sites so the stories and pictures can be loaded onto the Interactive Storybook which will be linked to our website.
Link below to download and print the form developed to help gather this information so it can be loaded into the Storybook link. Email the form to mark.rutledge85@gmail com.
We will coordinate a meeting the Hays County Historian, Kate Johnson, to gather a baseline of known historical sites so they can be loaded to the storybook link.
