Texas Indians and Europeans alike were drawn to the area of Lampasas. The city was first called Burleson in 1850 by settler John Burleson. Later, the town name was changed to Lampasas Springs due to the area’s seven springs —two of which produce 3 million gallons of water a day.

In 1883, the city of Lampasas became the official name of the growing region. Today, Lampasas is home 7,291, according to the 2020 U.S. Census. 


No matter what you’re craving, Lampasas is home to BBQ joints like Momma Jeans BBQ, Alfredo’s Mexican Restaurant, Giovanni’s Italian Restaurant, and German food at Eve’s Café. 


If you’re looking for some quality shopping, Lampasas has a variety of quaint businesses to shop from like My Girls, The Trading Post Antiques, and Rustler’s Junction. 


There are plenty of outdoor activities for you and your loved one to enjoy the Texas sun! Head out to 109-acre Hancock Park, which also includes a golf course. Or check out some sculptures at Hanna Springs Sculpture Garden and accessible access to Colorado Bend State Park.
