ROUNTREE'S STAGE STAND. Rountree's Stage Stand was at the headquarters of the J. F. Rountree ranch three miles west of Fashing in eastern Atascosa County. In the late 1870s the Rountrees operated a livery stable and cafe for the Corpus Christi and Brownsville stages of the San Antonio and Rio Grande Stage Company. In 1879 the Rountree Stage Stand was the only stage stop along the San Patricio Trail between Fairview and Oakville.
