Hutto, TX – Williamson County

Population 19,728 // Official Website // Schools

Hutto is located 20 miles northeast of Austin in Williamson County. It was founded in 1855 and incorporated in 1940. The city was named for James Emory Hutto, a wealthy cattleman who sold five acres of land to the International-Great Northern Railroad in 1876. During construction, the railroad company purchased five acres of land for a designated station stop, essentially establishing the town of Hutto. Early residents were drawn to Hutto in the 1890’s when it was touted as an “important cotton market” by the Texas State Gazetteer. Many of these early settlers were immigrant families from Germany, Sweden and Denmark.

Today, Hutto’s unique blend of small-town charm and convenient central location makes it one of the fastest growing cities in Texas. Many historic homes have been restored, reminiscent of the small Swedish farming community that established the town in the early 1900’s. You can still stroll through Old Town, the original boundaries for the City of Hutto. Old Town offers a host of restaurants and shops within the Hutto Commercial Historic District, all of which are easily reached on foot.
