Bee Cave, TX – Travis County

Population 6,515 // Official Website // Schools

Bee Cave was named for a large cave of wild Mexican honeybees by early settlers to the area. This small, peaceful village is located about 20 miles west of Austin. Residents enjoy tranquil hill country living, while still being in close proximity to major employers, health care facilities, and the myriad of other benefits the City of Austin has to offer.

In the 1850’s, the Bohls family was one of the first to settle on the land that would become Bee Cave. In the 1860’s the area gained popularity as a good place to raise a family on quiet farmland. Over the subsequent years, the village grew to include several stores, a cigar factory, a cotton gin, a school and a post office.

Today Bee Cave still has much to offer. There are numerous outdoor activities, including four parks, nearby Lake Travis, and an outstanding golf course that was laid out by the PGA Tour Design architects. Additionally, the Hill Country Galleria offers an abundance of quality shopping, dining, services and entertainment.

In 1987 the village of Bee Cave decided to become incorporated so as not to be annexed by the City of Austin. Bee Cave’s government now consists of an elected City Council including a Mayor and five Council members who set the policies for operation of the City government.
