Georgetown’s history dates back to prehistoric times with humans inhabiting the region since at least 9,000 B.C. The earliest known inhabitants can be linked to the Clovis culture, which is a Paleo-Indian culture that first appeared around 9200 B.C. The famed “Leanderthal Lady” skeletal remains were found in an area immediately southwest of the city. The Tonkawas, who were a flint-working and hunting people, were the first known historical occupants of the region. As settlers began to move into the region, the Comanches continued to raid their settlements until the 1860’s.
Georgetown experienced significant growth after the establishment of Southwestern University and the construction of the railroad, which took place in 1878. At this time, the economy depended largely on agricultural activity with Williamson County being the top producer of cotton in the state. Following recurring problems related to flooding, the county ultimately formed a dam on the north fork of the San Gabriel River resulting in the formation of Lake Georgetown. Today, 180 homes and buildings within the town of Georgetown are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With the unique architecture throughout the downtown area and its residential neighborhoods, walking through Georgetown is like taking a step back in time.
