About Deaf Smith Oak
In the early 1800s, during Texas’ fight for independence from Mexico, frontiersman and military spy Erastus “Deaf” Smith climbed the Deaf Smith Oak to scout Mexican troops moving into the Cibolo Creek area. Smith suffered permanent hearing loss because of a childhood disease. Despite this difficulty, he achieved success and became a role model for the hearing impaired.
