Acton State Historic Site, the smallest park in the state park system, is on Farm Road 1190 just outside of Acton in northeast Hood County. The .006-acre site comprises only the Crockett family plot in the old Acton Cemetery. The significant grave at the site is that of David Crockett's second wife, Elizabeth. The state does not own the site, but the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department maintained the plot through 2007. Effective January 1, 2008, operational control of Acton State Historic Site was transferred to the Texas Historical Commission.
