Lampasas, in the heart of Lampasas County and Central Texas, is home to less than 10,000 residents who live among grand prairies, sloping hills covered with wildflowers, and fields populated with white-tailed deer and game birds. Natural mineral springs, flowing rivers and streams provided the backdrop for the land John Burleson settled in 1850. John named the town after himself, Burleson; however, due to the natural springs the town later became known as Lampasas Springs. With the creation of a county and government system in place by 1856, Lampasas was named as the county seat and incorporation followed in 1883. With the arrival of the railroad in 1882 and the abundance of natural beauty and wildlife, Lampasas began to boom.
