Romantics will want to seek out this specimen. Nestled in the heart of Texas, just up the road from the Beveridge Suspension Bridge, stands a magnificent oak with a wide canopy that stretches across the road, known to locals as Matrimonial Oak. (It's also referred to as Wedding Oak, Marriage Oak, etc.)
Before the Spanish arrived in this fertile land along the San Saba River, where native pecans grow in abundance, it's said that Native Americans would hold council meetings and unity ceremonies beneath its protective branches. Centuries later, it remained a beloved meeting spot for couples to exchange vows. In 2017, the oak suffered a major loss when a limb measuring about ten feet in diameter cracked and broke off. Fortunately, the tree has survived and couples today can still visit the tree and pledge their eternal love.
