Wake up, San Marcos

Wake up San Marcos Residents before it’s too late!
Next year will mark Cape’s Dam’s 150th Birthday (built 1867). It was determined “eligible” for the National Register of Historic Places for its significance to commerce and engineering by the National Park Service in 1985. It was the first industrial activity in Hays County and could be lost forever if we sit by and do nothing.

Dam is a historical fixture

To whom it may concern,


I am expressing my dismay over the removal of the dam at Cape’s Camp. It is a historical fixture built in the 1860s. What would this town do if all of us who owned historical properties would just tear down our properties rather than lovingly repair and maintain them as we do?
