Originally named Du Pre in 1881, the town of Buda changed its name after discovering that another Du Pre, Texas was already in existence. The name was changed in 1887 in honor of the area’s Hungarian immigrants, with Buda being a shortened version of Hungary’s capital of Budapest. Formerly a town with a strong agricultural presence, the economy was once dominated by dairy farming, beef cattle and cotton production. Commercial businesses were also established in the town’s early days, with a 150-foot wide “reservation” being placed between town lots and the railroad in 1881. This allowed the railroad to place buildings on parkland, thereby serving as the lifeblood of the town for several decades. Several businesses, particularly those that catered to railroad travelers, will developed along the railway.
The town of Buda was incorporated in 1948. By the mid-1980’s, the cement and craft industries had become an integral part of the town’s economy. Today, the town is a home rule city with a council-manager form of government. The town also has its own Planning and Zoning Commission, Parks Commission, Historical Commission, Board of Adjustments and Economic Development Corporation. Citizen groups include the Buda Downtown Merchants Association and the Buda Area Chamber of Commerce.
With its established neighborhoods, beautiful countryside and low crime rates, it is easy to understand why Buda is one of Austin’s fastest growing suburbs.
