Neither heat nor poison nor urban development could bring this piece of Texas history down.
– In Short
The only survivor of a 14-tree grove called the Council Oaks by local Indians, legend has it that the tree marks the spot where Stephen F. Austin signed the first boundary treaty with Texas' Native Americans. As the 20th century began, the Council Oaks fell prey to Austin's urban expansion, making this the last tree by the '20s. It was then saved and added to the American Forestry Association's compilation of famous trees.
