Hanging Tree in Kyle, Texas

The Kyle Hanging Tree is about 10 miles south of Kyle on Old Post Road (CR 136) on your left.

Of all the hanging-tree stories in Texas, this one is the shortest. Cowboys found a dead man hanging here and buried him not far from the trunk of this Live Oak.

This grave for the mystery cowboy became the Kyle Cemetery. The tree is near the entrance of the cemetery and is easily recognizable by its shape and its solitary location.
