Bastrop County History

The history of Bastrop County as a county goes back to 1834 when it was originally set up as a municipality of Mexico, before being reorganized as a county in 1837. The county is named after a famous Dutch settler, the Baron of Bastrop, Felipe Enrique Neri, who assisted Stephen F. Austin in obtaining land grants. 

The town of Bastrop was almost the capital of the Republic of Texas but lost this title to Austin (then known as Waterloo). However, this speaks to the central status of the area during that time, and the relative lack of subsequent development has allowed it to preserve much of this history. Today, Bastrop city is known as “The Most Historic Small Town in Texas” with over 100 sites on the National Register of Historic Places.
