  • News Image

The county seat of Williamson County, Texas.

Just north of Austin, Georgetown (population 49,000) includes the “Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas,” where the Williamson County Courthouse serves as the centerpiece to the finest collection of late Victorian commercial architecture in the state.

Georgetown was the first city in Texas to be named a Great American Main Street City in 1997, the highest honor bestowed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Today, three National Register Districts host more than 180 historic businesses and homes.
