One of our Wells Branch traditions, the annual Pioneer Festival celebrates Texas history by offering a window to our past. Pioneer Fest is centered around the historic Wells Branch Homestead, the 1850s-era cabin in Katherine Fleischer Park and features fun and educational activities throughout the day so each of us may experience the history of19th Century Texas. Demonstrations include rope making, corn husk doll making, syrup making and butter churning, just to name a few. If you would like to volunteer or have a craft or activity from that period for demonstration, call the MUD office at 251-9814. This event is hosted by the MUD with just about every single community service group participating – a TRUE community event!

How to Protest YOUR Property Tax Appraisal
Sunday, May 3 • 3:30-5:00pm • WB Community Library • 15001 Wells Port Drive
Appraised values have been rising and with them, property taxes. Our Williamson County residents have already begun receiving their new appraisals and the Travis County appraisals should start arriving around May 1. In collaboration with the Friends of Wells Branch Community Library, Tammy DeWitt Le of Horizon Realty has arranged a free class with a fantastic Guest Speaker, Laura Casey, Senior Property Tax Consultant. This informative seminar is all about learning how to lower your property taxes and how the protest process works.
Laura Casey is an expert at the right way to work with the appraisal district and will walk us through the entire process from how to fill out the form, why it’s important to mail it as late as possible, exemptions that lower your taxes (solar, over 65, homestead), and how to be successful in presenting your data at your hearing. There are lots of can’t miss tips, so bring your form to fill out and you will get all your questions answered.
