Established as the seat of Williamson County in 1848, Georgetown has a wealth of history. The town is home to Southwestern University – the oldest university in Texas – which is centrally located just half a mile from Georgetown’s historic square.

The jewel of the town, the square is a wonderful starting point for any fans of history or architecture. Following years of plastering and whitewashing the business facades downtown, Georgetown started the Main Street Project, an initiative to refurbish the stunning Victorian architecture of shops, offices, and homes in town. At a time when interest rates on loans were flying through the roof in other parts of the country, Georgetown banks offered much more affordable options, which allowed over 46 buildings to be renovated and eventually added to the Williamson County Courthouse Historical District, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

For those looking for a small town with a range of educational opportunities, look no further than the Georgetown Independent School District. Georgetown High School has received the National Blue Ribbon Award, an award that celebrates schools exhibiting standards of academic excellence, and Southwestern University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, as well as the National Association of Schools of Music.

Fans of the outdoors will want for little in Georgetown. As the town is located at the North and South fork of the San Gabriel River, opportunities for hiking, biking, and other recreation are plentiful. Interested in something a little off the beaten path? Inner Space Cavern, a cave on the south side of Georgetown, is a fun and fascinating place to visit.

Georgetown is well-known for its incomparable retirement communities. With its long-standing reputation (and weather!), the town has attracted residents that have provided economic stimulation, lots of community support, and volunteer work that extends throughout the entire county. But Georgetown is also a place for families. There are countless events held in town throughout the year, such as the Red Poppy Festival (held in April), Market Days (held in summer), a Boo Bash (Halloween), and the Annual Christmas Stroll.
