Facts about Austin
In addition to being the capital of Texas, Austin is the seat of Travis County, and the largest city within the county. Not all of Austin is within the Travis County borders; portions of the city are also in Williamson and Hays Counties. As of the 2020 census, the population of Austin stood at 961,855. The 2021 estimated population had increased to 964,177.
The history of Austin dates back to 1835 when the area was first settled. The following year began the war with Mexico, and the subsequent independence of Texas as its own country. By 1839, the community – first called Waterloo – was selected as the new capital for the Republic of Texas. Soon, Waterloo was renamed Austin. The change was made to honor Stephen F. Austin, who served as the first secretary of state and is also known as the Father of Texas.
Today, Austin is considered a center for education and finance as well as government. The city is also something of a music mecca. Along with providing venues for local artists, luminaries such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Willie Nelson, and a number of country and western artists have played there. For decades, PBS has produced the series "Austin City Limits", based in the city, and featuring concerts by artists spanning several genres.
