Park Overview

In early 2018, Hutto acquired this property and in the spring of 2018, began making it into a park. This expansive, beautiful park is set along the banks of Brushy Creek, is home to Hutto's July 4th Celebration, and will be the home of many future community events!

History of Adam Orgain

In 2021, the Hutto City Council officially named this parkland Adam Orgain Park. Mr. Orgain was an African American man born into slavery in Tennessee in 1837 and taken to Texas. In 1854, at the age of 17, he became the first settler in Hutto when he was placed to watch over his enslaver’s ranching and cattle interests in this area. In the same timeframe of learning of his freedom on Juneteenth of 1865, Mr. Orgain married Eveline. Fifteen years later, Mr. Orgain purchased five acres of land for their home near Cottonwood Creek for $125, where he and Mrs. Orgain continued to raise their family. In 1893, Mrs. Orgain passed away and Mr. Orgain sold the homestead, eventually leading to the creation of Hague Street, Orgain Street and Walker Street. Mr. Orgain passed away in Hutto in 1902. It is in his honor as the first settler of our town that Adam Orgain Park is named.
