Visiting The Area

Jasper Texas Area Guide

Jasper has a cozy, home town feel.  And though still a modestly sized town, there’s no shortage of things to do or places to go when you stay at The Bird & Butterfly Inn.  Whether a nature walk, a visit to the museum or dinner in town, you’re sure to find plenty of options when you stay with us.

The Jewel of the Forest

Jasper County was one of the original 23 counties at the creation of the Republic of Texas in 1836 and was originally settled around 1824. It’s seen many changes since then. Historically a major producer of lumber, you can still see logging trucks on the roads here daily.

However, the abundant natural beauty here makes it easy to see why Jasper is called “The Jewel of the Forest.” In addition to the tremendous beauty of the East Texas Piney Woods, in 1956, construction began on what is now the Sam Rayburn Dam and Reservoir, or as we call it, Sam Rayburn Lake. At a total length of over 19,000 feet, it covers a surface area of over 114,000 acres and is both the largest reservoir, and the largest man-made lake in Texas and it continues to be a top fishing destination for anglers.

A Butterfly & Bird Migration Route

Texas is a major flyway for many varieties of birds and butterflies and with Jasper having one of three major flyways, it’s a well-traveled route – so much so that in 2015, Governor Greg Abbot signed a declaration naming Jasper “the butterfly capital of Texas.”

Accordingly, Jasper is a proud host of the annual Butterfly Festival celebrating the migration of these magnificent insects. The City of Jasper is also home to the Butterfly House in the Butterfly Gardens at the Jasper Arboretum. Visitors to the Butterfly House learn about the migration and life cycle of these spectacular butterflies and these visits add to Jasper’s local economic prosperity.
