Old Evergreen Oak

Painting completed in: 2011

This Great Oak Tree is on FM 1624, north of Giddings, and marks the site of Evergreen, an early pioneer community on the El Camino Real, now State Highway 21. By 1836, Doctor J. M. Stockton built an Inn beside this historic oak. One of Dr. Stockton's more notable guests was General Sam Houston.
