Facts about Bastrop
Bastrop is a smaller city that serves as the seat for Bastrop County, Texas. According to the 2020 census, the city is home to 9,688 people. It's sometimes considered a suburb or bedroom community in Austin, which is about 30 miles away. Bastrop is considered part of the Greater Austin Metropolitan Area.
There is evidence of military occupation in the area as far back as 1804. What would become Bastrop came about due to the creation of land grants to Moses and Stephen F. Austin. Felipe Enrique Neri, Baron de Bastrop, was serving as the land commissioner at the time. The new town was named after Bastrop as an acknowledgment of his efforts to secure the land grants.
The town was platted in 1832, with a town square surrounded by a business district, and then residential properties. Two years later, the town was renamed Mina. That name was retained until a formal incorporation in 1837 reverted the name to Bastrop.
After recovering from damage from two wildfires in 2011, Bastrop has continued to grow at a slow pace. At present, there are four primary employers in the area: the Bastrop County government, the MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Bastrop Independent School District, and the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa.
