Killeen & Fort Hood Real Estate
Killeen is known for the Fort Hood military base. The base includes the 1st Cavalry Museum, featuring an outdoor exhibition of historic military vehicles. On the Central Texas College campus, the Mayborn Science Theater hosts planetarium shows. East of the city, Temple Lake Park has picnic areas, a beach and bass-filled waters.
Killeen is home to Fort Hood and we proudly support and recognize our men and women in uniform. Fort Hood was originally established as Camp Hood in 1942. On April 13, 1950, the announcement came from Washington, D.C., that the Army General Staff had approved making Camp Hood a permanent installation and changing its name to Fort Hood. The change was made effective on April 15, 1950 and to this day Killeen residents couldn’t be prouder to host “The Great Place.”
