Treaty Oak

507 Baylor St., Austin, Texas 78703 USA

“A symbol of Texas History”

Estimated to be over 500 years old, the large oak tree standing on a busy urban street corner is a local symbol of Texas history, and a international symbol of resilience. It is the last of fourteen Live Oak trees once known to Comanche and Tonkowa Indians as the Council Oaks where both peace and war parties were initiated. Religious ceremonies were held where a tea was made from it's acorns in hopes of protecting loved ones far from home. Legend also tells that Stephen Austin himself signed the first treaty between the Anglos and the Indians beneath the shade of this tree in 1824, thus the tree's name, Treaty Oak.
