Historic Homes Driving Tour
Georgetown’s quiet, tree-lined, inner neighborhoods and lovingly restored Square continue to lend the charm of yesteryear to this, Williamson County’s bustling seat of government. Prominently sited on high ground near the San Gabriel River, Georgetown still provides the same natural resources which encouraged early settlers to make their homes here. And Georgetown continues to offer the commercial, governmental, cultural and educational opportunities which stimulated later residents to share in the community’s superior quality of life.
Although new development is encircling the original “town site” and its later historic “additions,” contemporary Georgetown continues to manifest respect for its heritage and its commitment to preservation. A local historic ordinance protects the downtown Square, while zoning ordinances discourage commercial encroachment that would destroy the integrity of the older residential areas. Historical designations have been awarded by the State of Texas and by the National Register of Historic Places to individual structures, sites and neighborhoods throughout the city.
