The Mason Homestead is an 1860s-era restored farm house in the heart of Leander. The property was part of a 300-acre tract that was given to Charles C. Mason by his father shortly after the Civil War ended in 1865. In 2005 the 3½ acre Homestead was given to the City by Charles Mason's granddaughter, Christine Mason. Prior to City ownership the property was designated as a Texas Century Farm.
