History in a Pecan Shell

The town that never was – but could’ve been.

The name Hezekiah Williams is the most important in Hays City history. It’s also the only name in Hays City history. Williams was a town builder and he developed his property around 1908 with the intention of “stealing” the county seat status of San Marcos. While Williams tried hard to lure settlers by building a hotel, store, lumberyard and church, he lured no one away from San Marcos or for that matter, Kyle either. Hays City continues to be shown (barely) on the Hays County map.
