Petition: Rename Dripping Springs to Pound Town

Phase 1 complete, thanks everyone! Stay tuned on the blog or get merch at www.poundtowntx.com or on twitter and instagram @poundtowntx

 

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.

Donations will be used to fund a fun campaign that may or may not result in a ballot initiative, and at the very least we'll donate a good portion of the proceeds to Friends of the Pound House for upkeep and education at the historic homestead.  100% of the funds raised here are going to be donated. See Update #3


Final Update: See latest update (#4) all funds have been donated!!
I even covered the fees that GoFundMe charges.

This is an initiative that some DSHS alum and local business owners have been kicking around for a few years. If you hate it please channel that hate into something productive like a charitable donation to a worthy cause.
