Located in Founders Park is the Dr. Pound Historical Farmstead, the oldest home in Dripping Springs. Built in 1854, the home now serves as a museum brimming with artifacts, local history and haunts. Dr. Pound was the patriarch of the family and provided medical care for locals and natives in the Dripping Springs area. One evening, many years ago before the home became a museum, two cousins in the Pound family were heading off to sleep in the parlor. The only two members of the family that were still awake, they thought it strange and a little eerie that footsteps could be heard in the room with them. The footsteps continued to get closer and closer until it felt as if someone was standing right over the terrified cousins. Petrified by fear, the girls shut their eyes and prayed the spirit would go away. The next morning, the girls awoke unharmed but never spent another night in the parlor again.
