Below is MI-BOX’s complete guide to moving to Austin, Texas.
Austin is the fourth largest city in Texas and the 11th largest in the USA. One of the things to know before moving to Austin is that its origins lie in the riverside village of Waterloo, a buffalo-hunting area that was occupied by the Tonkawa and Comanche tribes. In 1839, it became the permanent capital of the Republic of Texas and was renamed Austin in memory of Stephen F. Austin, known as the father of the republic. In 1871, the Houston and Texas Central Railroad and a bridge across the Colorado River changed the face of Austin. They helped Austin became a major trading center for farmers and ranchers.
In 1900, Austin witnessed a huge flood that caused the bridge to collapse and widespread destruction of other property. However, Austin bounced back and found a new life. The river water was harnessed for flood control and for producing power in the early 1900s, and Austin quickly grew into an industrial center. Lots of new technology came to Austin in this period, which encouraged people to move to Austin.
Austin occupies 274 square miles of area. It is the seat of Travis County and also extends into Hays and Williamson counties. It is one of the southernmost state capitals in America.
