Historic Fort Tumbleweed®
An Authentic Old West Town near Austin Texas



Owned and managed by Leonard and Lynda Kubiak

For the past 30 years, we've moved a variety of Old West era buildings to this 16-acre old west haven to compliment the original buildings on the 1850's Bryson homeplace and Stagecoach Stop site. We have also collected many thousands of old west relics dating back hundreds of years and fossils dating back millions of years. For the past 30 years, we have conducted historical tours for large groups on an appointment basis.

Currently, the site has 12 historical buildings and the wildest assortment of "thangs" that you will ever hope to come across.

Historic Fort Tumbleweed is located 20 miles Northwest of Austin, Texas on the Georgetown to Burnet highway (15850 West HW29) near Liberty Hill, Texas. We're four miles west of Seward Junction directly on HW29 (bluebonnet & lakes trail)!

To see an example of some of our products, take a gander at our Indian relics catalog , visit our rocks, crystals, and fossils catalog Timeless Gifts or browse the Fort Tumbleweed Collection of Native American Jewelry or the
the vintage cowboy and old west collectibles.

We've added several new online catalogs including the vintage spurs collection Vintage Cowboy Spurs and the Native American Collectibles indexIndex of Fort Tumbleweed Native American Collectibles Catalogs and presently, we're working on others.


Fort Tumbleweed combines living history with a unique shopping experience. Step into one of a number of shops housed in early-day Texas buildings and see a dazzling display of Indian and old west relics, Texas arts and crafts,and collectibles of every description.
These buildings feature early-day Texas construction techniques from notched and fitted log cabins to early milled cedar and square nail construction buildings of the pre-civil war era.

Or take a walk back in time on this tree-covered 16-acre site dotted with old outbuildings, primitive log pens, rock walls,historical buildings including several log cabins dating back to the days of the Texas Republic. Enjoy the majesty of the huge oak trees that have graced the site for upwards of 400 years! But look out for the deer!


A row of old mule-drawn iron agriculture tools can be found out past the working blacksmith shop. The primitive log barn houses part of a vast pioneer museum collection for the site.

Browse through the open air flea markets and enjoy some good bar-b-que and refreshments (and of course home-made peach ice cream in season)! This winter, warm up with our oak-burning wood stove (just like they did well over a hundred years ago). Above all, you and the family can brush up on your Texas history with local historian and owner, Len Kubiak, and dicker on prices for any of the thousands of one-of-a-kind relics you'll find in the Museum Store/Trading Post.

The Museum Store/Trading Post is currently open Saturdays Only until further notice.
