In the year 2000, the two-plus acres now known as Heritage Park was deeded from the Lakeway Historical Society, Inc. to the City of Lakeway with the provision that the land may be used, developed, or improved to:
• Develop and enhance local pride in Lakeway’s heritage, growth, and development.
• Educate youth and adults about Lakeway’s historical significance to the region.
• Promote Lakeway’s historical sites and legends.
• Be a repository for the official and historical records regarding the geographical area of Lakeway.
• Further the collection, preservation, storage, and display of Lakeway historical items.
Heritage Park is open to the public all year. The Heritage Center building is open to the public from January through November on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. excluding holidays. The Center is open by appointment only during the month of December. Contact the Heritage Center Archivist at (512) 608-9533, or email[email protected] for additional information.
Spirit of Freedom Monument
The Heritage Committee adds the names of past and present Lakeway residents to the Spirit of Freedom Monument system. The monument honors those residents who served in the armed forces during specified periods of war, hostility or conflict, including World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, the Gulf War, Panama, and Operations Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and Iraqi Freedom (Iraq), and the Global War on Terror.
2023 update: New panels are on order to allow the addition of names over time. These new panels are expected to be installed in the Winter of 2023. Monument engraving applications will resume in Spring 2024.
More information may be obtained by email or by calling the Heritage Center any Tuesday, Thursday or Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
