Kempner Real Estate
Located halfway between Lampasas and Killeen at the intersection of U.S. Highway 190 and Ranch Road 2313, Kempner was originally named Picket Valley. After some trouble with the natives during its early days beginning back in the 1850s, the town of Kempner finally settled with its current name, one that was named after Harris Kempner - director of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway that first came through in 1882.
Kempner offers plenty of recreational opportunities that suit residents of all ages. Whether you're looking for a relaxing day of fishing on the Lampasas River, getting up close and personal with the animals at the Topsey Exotic Ranch or bike ride through nature, you are sure to have a good time. Kempner is known for its small town feel and its availability of homes with acreage. If you're looking for a slower way of life with room to roam and explore, Kempner is the place for you. If you're looking for a town with big shopping malls and mega-stores, you won't find it in Kempner, but everywhere you go there will always be some form of wildlife to observe, from deer and wild turkey to blue jays, cardinals and the wildflowers that blanket the rolling hills.
