Liberty Hill, Texas
Before Liberty Hill was known for its State Champions, the fightin' Panthers, it was a small community built by farmers and ranchers who originally settled the area out of covered wagons. Nestled between the North and South forks of the San Gabriel River, locals past and present relish in the rolling Texas Hill Country, swimming in crystal clear rivers, cruising along old windy roads, and living the small town life.
Indian Mound Ranch was established in 1873, not long after the first settlers organized in 1850. One of the first ranches in Liberty Hill, it stands to be one of the last standing Texas Century Ranches in the area.
Passed down through the Whitehead family for six generations it's currently held by sisters Terri Jones Hanley and Susan Jones Anderson.
The fact that so many ranches have been sold over the years has not been lost on Susan and Terri. Part of their purpose and mission for the ranch is to see it survive many more generations, intact and untouched by developers.
Terri and Susan (or “Susie” for those of you that go THAT far back) grew up in Liberty Hill. As kids, some of their best Saturdays were spent in town at the Liberty Hill Market Days.
Susan hopes community members realize that same feeling when they visit the Market at Indian Mound Ranch — families spending time in their town, supporting local small business folk. It’s the way it’s supposed to be.
Some may not remember the days when life was slow and a little simpler, but maybe we here at the Market can help recreate that for you and your own family.
What was once simply a working family ranch, is now a hub for Liberty Hill locals. You can generally find Susan working the Market on Saturdays and getting to know her customers on Thursdays at Food Truck Roundup.
If you're looking to find a strong sense of community and want to get to know your local neighbors, visit the Market at Indian Mound Ranch every Saturday, or contact Susan to host an event of your own.
We and our vendors want to thank you all for supporting small, local businesses at Indian Mound Ranch!
