Kissing Tree Park Preserves History

A historic oak tree that residents once rallied to save is getting its own Precinct 4 park.

Located near T.C. Jester and Louetta, the more-than-a-century-old tree has ties to Klein's original German settlers. Residents say celebrations and photos under the tree were common when the Strack family operated the Strack Farms Restaurant and reception hall on the property.
