Our first view of Cross Mountain.

This Marl and Limestone hill, elevation 1915 feet was first recorded and described by Ferdinand Romer in 1847. A timber cross was found on top of the hill and suggests that Spanish missionaries recognized it as a landmark on the trail from San Antonio to the mission in San Saba. In 1849 a more substantial cross was placed on the site and the original cross has been lost. In 1946 the present metal cross was erected on the site.
