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