Explore Center Point and the Texas Hill Country

Center Point is a town with a rich history. It was originally named Zanzenberg in 1859 by the post office founder Dr. Charles de Ganahl, but in 1872, when the post office moved to the south side of the river, it was renamed to Center Point. Center Point is located in the middle of the Texas Hill Country and it was an important stopping point for commerce back in the day. If you’re interested in history, you’ll definitely want to check out the Center Point Historical District which is located less than a mile from our cabins, and can be accessed by heading toward the beautiful waterfall at the dam and taking the low-water crossing to town.
