Pound Town, Texas is the idea to rename Dripping Springs, TX in order to honor the memory of Dr. Joseph and Sarah Pound, the town's founders.

The manifold benefits include recognition of their contribution to the early township:

•Dr. Pound was the earliest doctor in Hays County.

•The Pound house served as a medical office and hospital, church, schoolhouse, post office and social gathering place for the fledgling community of Dripping Springs.

•Dr. Pound also insisted on treating the local Indians with respect, and due to this was never raided.

Proceeds will generate revenue that we will donate to a local historical preservation group, as well as starting an initiative to change the name of Dripping Springs, TX to Pound Town, TX.
