Comanche: Fleming Oak


Located on the southwest corner of the Comanche Courthouse Square, the Fleming Oak is the last standing tree from a grove of live oaks which was the saving shelter of a young settler in the mid-1800s. When the tree was to be cut down in order to pave the square, Martin Fleming vowed to protect the tree even to his death because without its protection, Fleming would been killed by a band of wild hostile Indians when he was a teenager. The tree was spared and now stands as a tribute to the former Texas Ranger and Confederate Army solder.
