Granbury, Texas. Where Texas History Lives.

Nestled on the banks of a sparkling lake and boasting a restored Victorian town square, Granbury, Texas offers country charm and fun for the whole family.

Granbury, Texas

Granbury, Texas is a relaxing resort community surrounded by the freshly plowed fields, pecan orchards and lazy rivers of the rolling Texas countryside, and is located 35 miles southwest of Fort Worth, TX, on U.S. Highway 377.

Granbury's pristine courthouse square, established in 1871, and once the home of cowboys, saloons and ten-pin alleys, was the first in Texas to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The historic town square is embraced by sparkling Lake Granbury, a 30-mile long rural recreational haven. Fishing, swimming, water-skiing and sailing are enjoyed on the lake. Created in 1969, when the Brazos River was dammed at the DeCordova Bend, Lake Granbury has acres of surface area for water sports, fun, and relaxation.

A frontier settlement that bustled when cotton was king, Granbury, Texas is now replete with an array of antique and art galleries, Victorian bed and breakfasts, and dining pleasures from country to gourmet.
