State Historic Site


Visit Historic Acton, Texas

Alone or with hundreds of family and friends, a retreat to Acton will be one for the memory book. As we like to say in Acton, you’ll step back in time without leaving the present.

Be sure to stop a few minutes at the smallest State Historic Site in Texas, a regal monument of Elizabeth Crockett looking off in the distance for the return of her husband, Davy Crockett, Texas pioneer and patriot, killed at the Alamo in 1836. The monument in Acton Cemetery marks the burial site of Crockett’s second wife, who died in 1860.
