Lampasas is located in central Texas, part of the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood metropolitan area. As of the 2010 census, the population was 6,681 residents. Lampasas is home to mineral springs health spas which once claimed to cure everything. According to Wikipedia, the 25-bed Rollins Brook Community Hospital in Lampasas was established by two physicians in 1935. In 1958, Rollins Brook was the smallest accredited hospital in Texas. In 1981, Rollins was sold to a for-profit health care provider in Houston. Over the next decade the hospital passed through the control of a succession of multiple owners. By 1991, the hospital declared bankruptcy and closed its doors without notice. Thereafter, citizens, unable to locate government or foundation grants, raised some $600,000 in community fund-raising activities to reclaim the facility. When it reopened on July 21, 1991, Rollins Brook became the only community hospital to survive bankruptcy. The story was broadcast by ABC News with Peter Jennings. Other attractions include the Lampasas County Museum, which is housed in the former home of pioneer doctor, J.A. Adkins (circa 1868.) The museum has permanent exhibits, exhibits coinciding with local events, and exhibits about topics of interest. The city of Lampasas is also host to several annual events, including the Spring Ho Festival and the Spring Ho BBQ Cook Off.
