Just a half-hour drive from Austin’s western enclave of Oak Hill, the once-tiny town of Dripping Springs is bursting with things to do — especially if you have a thirst for the more than a dozen breweries, distilleries and wineries that have turned this northern swath of Hays County into a weekend destination spot.

There’s a lot to do besides drink, of course, especially if you’re a fan of the outdoors and love swimming in the azure waters of Texas Hill Country oasis Hamilton Pool. But make no mistake: Dripping Springs and the surrounding area have become an attractive place for some of the area’s most promising booze makers. It’s just outside the crowded city and surrounded by the rugged green beauty of the Hill Country, with more land available and

THE BIRTH OF INDEPENDENCE DAY

 

When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical.

By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in the bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published by Thomas Paine in early 1776.

On June 7, when the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House (later Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, the Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies’ independence.

1. Property lines

Surveys can be pricey and seemingly unnecessary. But the thing about property line disputes is that they can crop up at the most inconvenient times—and you don’t want to be caught off guard when they do.

Maybe you loved the winding, tree-lined driveway. But until you had a survey done, you had no idea the driveway crossed over the neighbor’s lawn.  That means any improvements you want to make might be impossible, or you might end up in a drawn-out legal dispute with your neighbors.

2. Prior claims history

Previous owners might have ruined your chances of buying your dream home. A long history of insurance claims can render a home uninsurable, making it a risky purchase. (Or even an impossible one, depending on your lender.)
