Pioneer Plaza

Pioneer Plaza is Ballinger’s award-winning bicentennial project. Located downtown across the street from the town square and Runnels County Courthouse, it offers a charming, picturesque stop for a tourist.


The plaza has benches, picnic tables, trees, a gazebo, and a lighted fountain. The 1907 Star Tobacco Sign was discovered in 1979 when the plaster was removed from the building next to the plaza. It has been restored to a remarkable replica of the original.


The fountain has undergone reconstruction in the last couple of years with its most recent update in the spring of 2023.

The gazebo can be rented for $50. To reserve it, call City Hall at 325-365-3511.
