KISSING TREE IS

in the middle of where you want to be Why settle for a slice of Hill Country living when you can have the whole pie? Craft beer, live music and legendary nightlife in Austin. Two-stepping down the road at Gruene Hall or antiquing in the German town of Fredericksburg. Captivating history and refreshing margaritas just to the south in San Antonio. Plus, the pristine natural beauty all around ain’t too shabby either. Yep, being “where the action is” was ALWAYS part of Kissing Tree’s plan.

rom the birth of television to the rock n’ roll revolution to the civil rights movement, Boomers have always done life, well, big. This defining generation changed America for the better. You’re still changing it. And this Hill Country community was dreamed up, designed and built with you in mind. At Kissing Tree, we know there’s nothing “cookie cutter” about you. And whether you’re moving cross country, creating a new home just down the road, or yearning for the next big adventure, we know that you’re meant to keep exploring, learning, creating, or just chilling. We’re committed to building homes and fostering a lifestyle for the energy and attitude of Boomers, and that’s no easy feat. We get that you want your home. Your Hill Country view. Your fun. And none of the nonsense. You want a vibrant and active community that lets you live life on your own terms. You want a place where you can keep writing your story. And we respect that. Because the next chapter is what Kissing Tree is all about.

WHAT IN THE

Sam Houston KIND OF NAME IS

?

T

his Kissing Tree is actually kind of a Texas legend. It’s 1857, and a war hero named Sam Houston is running for governor. He’s made his way to the newly settled town of San Marcos, where the whole community has gathered to hear him speak. Sam Houston stands under the shade of an enormous live oak; behind him a Texas flag, handmade by the women of San Marcos. To Sam Houston, that flag was a special kind of hospitality – one that should be celebrated. So the general thanked each of these kind ladies with a kiss on the cheek. Back then, this had a touch of impropriety and gave people something to talk about. They remembered it so well that the majestic live oak came to be known as the Kissing Tree. We named our community after the welcoming spirit that inspired this legend. And, as it so happens, we think Kissing Tree is still something to talk about.
