At an elevation of 1340 feet, Comanche Hill is the fourth highest point in Bexas County. The hill lies on the southeastern edge of the Edwards Plateau and makes up the western edge of the Blackland Praire. Throughout history this site has provided a location for commerce as well as a site from which raids were performed on Spanish and Mexican mule trains and pioneer travellers. The tower atop the hill was built by Colonel Edward R. Coppock, Sr, U.S.A. retired. In addition to the tower, Colonel Coppock built a stone house and preserved the ancient council ring.
