BASTROP COUNTY'S HISTORICAL HOMES & BUILDINGS

Today the grand Nofzinger House in Elgin, built 1906, is the City Hall.

ENJOY A DOWNTOWN WALKING TOUR OF OUR HISTORIC CITIES:

 

On the front lawn of the City Hall is a small oak tree. According to the plaque, it was “grown from acorns harvested from Live Oak trees growing on the site where Stephen F. Austin, the Father of Texas, died.”

 

Throughout Bastrop County you'll find historic homes of all shapes, sizes and architectural styles -- but what is truly fascinating are the stories behind each home.

Memories of Old Houses

The steps are grooved by the

passages of generations,

and the rooms are laden, each

with its special set of memories.

Generations come and go,

changes and additions are made.

The house endures.

In it we are ever mindful

of the past,

ever mindful that each generation,

including our own,

yields to another. --Unknown

 

We hope you'll take the time to tour Bastrop, Elgin and Smithville to see these homes and to read their stories.
