Harper is a perfect weekend vacation destination, weekend getaway, and summer campground.  Set at an elevation of 2,054 feet where summer breezes are cooler, the community extends over 56 square miles of idyllic terrain that enfolds wooded cabins, recreational ranches, hunting properties, horse properties, country estates, and single-family homes.  Harper is 76 miles northwest of primary homes in San Antonio and 90 miles west of Austin homes

In 1863, the Eli McDonald and Matthew Taylor families were the first to settle here.  George Franklin Harper, the town's namesake, established a post office 20 years later.  Over 15,000 visitors attended the 1963 centennial celebration.  By the mid 1980s, the unincorporated town had become the community hub for a large ranching area and a growing number of residential subdivisions.  At that time several churches, a fire and ambulance service, banks, stores, and businesses created the backbone for a population that has since tripled.

The median home price is $100,000 and the cost of living is substantially below the nation's average.  Buyers planning to invest in real estate or escape the cities may  look at hunting cabins among the oak, maple and cedar where wildlife traverse the meadows, or smaller niches in the gorgeous river valley.  

Harper's iconic Double B Ranch & Resort offers 1,100 acres of tall trees, babbling brooks and streams with panoramic views.  Set on a hilltop, the Lodge offers private cabins, hosts distinctive events, golf tournaments, horseback & trail riding, hunting and shooting, and camping and hiking.  The Double B has hosted many elegant weddings, retreats, seminars, birthday parties, and class and family reunions.  Facilities now include an RV park.  

A large number of summer camps in the area bring people to sightsee and explore.  Recreation such as hiking, fishing, camping, mountain biking, and swimming offer plenty of adventures from Harper to Enchanted Rock to the Guadalupe River and Pedernales River, LBJ Ranch, Lost Maples and other parks in Texas Hill Country.
