About Austin TX
The area currently known as Austin was inhabited by many different Native American tribes, such as the Lipan Apaches, the Tonkawa tribe, and the Comanche’s before the pioneers from the US arrived. The small community of Waterloo was founded in the early 1830’s and was selected to be the capital of the Republic of Texas in 1839. The small community grew rapidly and the name was changed to Austin in honor of Stephen F. Austin.
In 1888, the Texas state capitol building was being advertised as the seventh largest building in the world after completion. The building is still part of the skyline of Austin. It is taller than the US States capitol building. The community is still known for the schoolteachers and senators who shaped its beginnings.
Austin is located in central Texas and is home to the University of Texas. It is also the capital of Texas. Austin is the 16th largest city in the US and the 4th largest city in Texas. The community is the economic and cultural center of the Austin Round Rock Metropolitan region that has a population of over 1.5 million people. It is one of the fastest growing communities in the US and, the residents of Austin are called Austinites. The think tanks and research labs that were built in Austin during the 1915’s, have given way to enough large sites of major technology corporations that has earned the community the nickname Silicon Hills.
When such artists as Willie Nelson and David Rodriguez came to Austin during the 1970’s the Austin music scene was born with countrywide attention. The official slogan of Austin is The Live Music Capital of the World. This is a reference to its status as home to many music venues and musicians.
The second and ultimately the successful colonization of the Texas area was led by a man named Stephen Fuller Austin. He is known as the Father of Texas and was honored as the namesake of the capital city of Austin, Stephen F. Austin State University, Austin College, as well as numerous Elementary schools.
Austin was established in 1839 and is rich in history. Texas is the only state that had been a successful republic for ten years prior to becoming a state. Texas was a sovereign nation between 1836 and 1846.
In 1836, after a five month struggle for independence Texas settlers broke away from the governance of Mexico. The Congress of the Republic of Texas appointed a commission to select a location for a permanent state capital in 1839. The commission bought 7,735 acres next to the Colorado River for the new capital. Included in the purchase was the small community of Waterloo, near to the location of what is currently known as the famous Barton Springs Pool.
The namesake of the new capital was Stephen F. Austin, who was known as the Father of Texas. However, many people, such as Sam Houston, were unhappy with the location of the new capital. Houston and others were concerned that the location was too remote and would be difficult to defend against local Indians and the Mexican army. In spite of these issues, a man named Edwin Waller was commissioned by the president of Texas named Mirabeau Lamar to plan the new community.
With Congress Avenue in the center, Waller laid Austin out on a 14 block grid plan. Wooden administration buildings were temporarily constructed that included a small wooden capitol building. President Lamar began living in the new capital in 1839, and Austin started growing quickly. Edwin Waller was elected the first mayor of the new community the following year.
In 1842, with Sam Houston as the president of Texas, he tried to relocate the state records to Houston, afraid that they might be confiscated by the Mexican army, which had just captured San Antonio. Austinites defended this action by force and wouldn’t permit the records to be moved. However, Austin languished after Sam Houston relocated his administration to Houston. The population of Austin decreased to less than 200 people.
In 1846, when Texas became a state, Austin was restored to its capital status. Austin experienced a surge of prosperity as the state capital. In 1853, the first permanent state capitol building was constructed and in 1888 was succeed by the current state capitol building. In 1856, the governor’s mansion was completed.
During the Civil War, Austin struggled with shortages of goods after Texas joined the Confederacy. African American neighborhoods and churches were established after the war, and the population of the community rebounded. The population of Austin became increasingly diverse in 1871, after the railroad arrived in the community. Along with its African American population, there was a mix of Swedish, Irish, Mexican and German settlers. The University of Texas was established in 1883 and became a major part of Austin’s identity.
During the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s, Austin experienced the blight of segregation. However, during the Civil Rights era, race relations improved and in 1956, the University of Texas admitted African American undergraduates and was the first university in the south to do so.
Austin experienced some reverses by the early 1900’s. The system of government of the community was changed twice prior to settling into its current configuration. Between the 1920’s and the 1950’s, major improvements were undertaken. Some of these improvements included the construction of the dams that form the famous lakes in the community. Many different major companies relocated their headquarters to Austin, and by the 1960’s, such as Texas Instruments, Motorola, and IBM.
