What is Pound Town???
Pound Town, Texas is the idea to rename Dripping Springs, TX in order to honor the memory of Dr. Joseph and Sarah Pound, the town's founders.The manifold benefits include recognition of their contribution to the early township:
•Dr. Pound was the first and finest doctor in Hays County.
•The Pound house served as a medical office and hospital, church, schoolhouse, post office and social gathering place for the fledgling community of Dripping Springs, and was built well enough that it still stands today!
•Dr. Pound also insisted on treating the local Indians with respect, and due to this was never raided.
•All of this while having and raising 11 children! There weren't a lot of entertainment options in early Pound Town.
