Camp Billy Gibbons - San Saba County’s hidden gem for Boy Scouts

By Donna Webb, Reporter

Recently, I found a hidden gem in San Saba County. It took me awhile that day. . . after about 15 miles down a dirt/rock road (CR 360) off Hwy 190 just past Richland Springs. Some residents already know about it; some may have forgotten about it, while others may not have a clue.The hidden gem is Camp Billy Gibbons! Yes, the Boy Scout camp is really a gem. . . you see, I know because I was invited to see it and watch some of the Scouts in action.

The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Editor’s Note: Part 37c of a continuing series.

In 1941, Vernon Thomas wrote his master thesis for the University of New Mexico, entitled “The History of Education in San Saba County.” Even at that late date, it was apparent that remnants of some Mob influence still lingered. Almost seven pages of his thesis were dedicated to the subject of Mob rule. One of the most remarkable entries said:

“...factors that delayed the developments of many San Saba County rural schools in the late nineties and in the early part of the present century were the result of mob rule....Even as late as 1925 school board members in one or two districts were always selected from those persons who were said to have been identified with mob rule....”
