On Hwy 290 between Johnson City and Stonewall, just east of Gillespie County line.

There's not too much to say about Hye except it's there. It makes it's contribution to Hill Country drives by being unusual enough to notice, but a little too short on amenities to stop.

LBJ swore in Postmaster General Lawrence O'Brien here. It's safe to assume Mr. O'Brien traveled considerably further for the ceremony than did Mr. Johnson. Hye was named for Hiram G. Brown, the settler who established the Post Office in 1886.

The population of Hye has never exceeded 200.
