Hotels in Lockhart, TX
Originally called Plum Creek, the city of Lockhart is found in Hill Country near Austin and Luling. A charming example of small town Texas, Lockhart is certainly worth a visit and a stay. Take the kids for a fun afternoon at Lockhart State Park, or enjoy a picnic at Lockhart City Park.
Lockhart is rich in history. A large war party of Comanches successfully swept down Guadalupe Valley all the way to the Gulf Coast, killing settlers, stealing horses, plundering and burning settlements. A volunteer force of settlers and Texas Rangers met the returning war party and defeated them at what is called the Battle of Plum Creek – the present city is named for Byrd Lockhart, pioneer surveyor.
