More about Georgetown


<br _moz_dirty="" />

 

Georgetown is the historic county seat of Williamson County. Both the county and the city have experienced a tremendous growth pattern over the last 10 years. The population of Georgetown has almost doubled since 1997, reaching approximately 47,400 residents. Williamson County's fast growth rate is due in large part to its location immediately north of Austin, coupled with Austin's rapid expansion northward. Originally founded at the fork of the San Gabriel River, Georgetown is only a short commute from the Austin city limits, and offers residents a small hometown feel.

Home to Southwestern University, the oldest university in Texas is located about a half-mile east of the historic square. Sun City is a large retirement-oriented and age-restricted development which constitutes more than one-third of the population of Georgetown, also called The "Retirement Capital of Texas."

Georgetown has a notable range of Victorian commercial and residential architecture. In 1976, a local historic ordinance was passed to recognize and protect the significance of the historic central business district. In 1977, the Williamson County Courthouse Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Georgetown is called the “Red Poppy Capital of Texas” for the wildflowers planted throughout the city and in many residents' front yards, which bloom each spring. The Red Poppy Festival is held every April in Georgetown, attracting up to 30,000 visitors annually, while hosting festivities and vendors sell amazing products in Town Square.

Retirement destination
Georgetown is considered to be one of the best places to retire in the nation because of its fairly warm climate year round, close proximity to both the countryside and Austin, excellent medical care including Alzheimer’s care, and its increasing population of retirees. In 2007, Georgetown was named by Retirement Places Rated (Seventh Edition) as the Best Place in America to Retire. Part of this is because Sun City, a large master-planned community for "active adults 55 and over," calls Georgetown home. Fifteen years after the project groundbreaking, Sun City is now home to nearly 11,000 residents—nearly 70% retired with a median age of 65—and has been a driving force behind growth, development and the very shape of Georgetown since its inception. Numerous active adult communities are also found in Georgetown, including the well-respected Wesleyan at Estrella, the Oaks at Wildwood, Heritage Oaks and many others.
