TEXAS LEANDER REHABILITATION CENTER

Dick Tausch

TEXAS LEANDER REHABILITATION CENTER. The Texas Leander Rehabilitation Center, so named in the late 1960s, was formerly the State Hog Farm. It was located on 700 acres seventeen miles northwest of Austin. The center had camping facilities, nature trails, and a wildlife management area. It enacted a pilot program for the development of recreational and educational facilities for the intellectually disabled and mentally ill of Texas. The organization was under the direction of the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation.
