Kissing Tree

Welcome to Kissing Tree- Retirement Community

When we chose the historical ground now Kissing Tree, we knew it was the place to create a vibrant, active adult community with a Texas attitude. Kissing Tree offers views, brews, and barbecues, and our incredible collection of indoor and outdoor amenities is designed to keep you as active as you want to be. Hundred-year-old live oak trees welcome you home. And like-minded neighbors provide a genuine sense of community and connection. Carved into the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, the 1,300-acre gated community is perfectly placed at the center point of Austin and San Antonio in the charming town of San Marcos. 

It all started in July 1857 when Sam Houston was campaigning for governor. Everyone in San Marcos gathered beneath the shade of a large oak tree to hear Houston speak. Behind him was a Texas flag handmade by the women of San Marcos. To Sam Houston, that flag was a special kind of hospitality that should be celebrated. So the General thanked each of the ladies with a kiss on the cheek.

Back then, this had a touch of impropriety and gave people something to talk about. They remembered it so well that the majestic live oak came to be known as the Kissing Tree. We named our community after the welcoming spirit that inspired this legend. And, as it so happens, we think Kissing Tree is still something to talk about.
