The Neighborhood

Explore and Discover

Where life is wide open.

The locals call downtown “The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas.” It’s a fine description of elegant Victorian-era storefronts lined with antique streetlights. You’ll get a comforting, familiar feeling strolling through the square. This is a place made for slowing down, connecting, and savoring the easy life.

Georgetown blends the best of modern-day Texas and timeless Lone Star traditions. While you’re here, drop into the stylish clothing stores, booksellers, and antique shops. Then grab a bite at the surprisingly hip restaurants serving everything from classic barbecue to pan-Latin fare.

The natural wide-open spaces are just as captivating. Like Lake Georgetown, the perfect spot to camp, fish, ski, and hike. And the Blue Hole lagoon, lined by gorgeous limestone bluffs. Bike the miles of trails winding through the neighborhoods, or ride your horse through Garey Park cowboy-style.

If you’re not one to be fenced in, you’re close to everything Austin has to offer. San Antonio and Houston, too. But you might as well take your time. Let the rolling hills and lazy river be your guide.


The History of Georgetown

The Georgetown area attracted early pioneers due to its fertile land, clean water, and abundant timber, which led to its development as a thriving agricultural community. The arrival of the railroad and Southern University in the 1880s further boosted the town's popularity.

Despite its initial growth, Georgetown remained a quiet town focused on cotton and cattle until the 1960s when the expanding urbanization of nearby Austin drove residential, commercial, and industrial development towards Georgetown. Unfortunately, this growth almost erased the city's rich history, as building owners downtown covered the Victorian facades to appear more modern.

However, after two decades of rehabilitation and preservation efforts, the lovely town square we know today has been restored.
