A history page for Austin.
Named for Stephen F. Austin, the "Father of Texas," the Austin area was founded when five scouts went out looking for a new capital city for the Republic of Texas. They chose an area on the north bank of the Colorado River. At the time they surveyed the area, a few families lived in a settlement called Waterloo. The city was "official" when the archives and the furniture of the Republic were moved to Austin from Houston around September 1, 1839.
The founding of Austin: 1838
