A Rich History,  A Promising Future

Established in 1832 and part of Stephen F. Austin’s “Little Colony”, Bastrop is the second oldest incorporated city in Texas. More than 130 historic buildings are located in and around Bastrop’s downtown. The historic district near the Colorado River offers a number of quaint shops featuring unusual gifts, custom candles, crafts, home and garden decor, clothing and antiques. Adding to the pleasure and convenience, Bastrop has unique restaurants, bakeries and coffee bars, each with its own comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Four beautiful 18-hole golf courses challenge golfing enthusiasts. Lake Bastrop and the Colorado River offer fishing, boating and other water activities. Hiking and bicycling are popular among the Lost Pines of Bastrop State Park, and canoe, kayak and bicycle rentals are available near the Bastrop State Park entrance. The LCRA’s McKinney Roughs Nature Park features miles of walking and equestrian trails.

All this ads up to one exceptional place to live and conduct business. As a result, the Bastrop area has seen some of the most impressive, and well-managed growth in all of Texas.
