Hutto is a small community located in eastern Williamson county and just northeast of Austin,
Texas. But, it is only small for now. Best described as "economically vibrant" it is experiencing tremendous growth due to
continued strong growth in Austin and Round Rock.
Hutto began expanding when Austin burst its seams, and growth in Round Rock began heating up,
driving up home prices. Many Austin residents and newcomers to the area looked for an escape from high city taxes and increasing home prices.
They wanted a more safe and serene place to live, as well as a more affordable place, conducive to starting and raising a
Hutto has grown from approximately 600 citizens, in 1990, to more than 19,728 in 2013. Hutto has become very attractive to small and mid-sized companies and the affordable
cost has made it a sustained growth area. All of this is in stark contrast to Hutto's sleepy image maintained since it's founding in
the mid-1800's. Populated originally by Swedish and German immigrants, it was forged when Indians still occupied the
The town was named after James Emory Hutto, who donated 50 acres of land for the original Hutto
train station to accommodate the International and Great Northern Railroad that was laying track.
Hutto has survived storms and fires that destroyed the eastern portion. Many of the old
buildings still stand in the western half and serve as it's official historic district.
In the city itself and just outside it's limits, there are almost 20 housing developments
underway. Builders have created their own storm of development and homes sell quickly.
All of this activity would make one think that the little town would struggle in it's own growth,
but Hutto has received an award at the Texas Municipal League Annual Conference and Exhibition for the 2007 Municipal
Excellence award for cities of less than 25,000 because of it's Organizational Development Plan. Hutto has managed it's growth
very well and has proven to be an excellent choice for families to move to and grow in. Because of it's business and economic
growth, many of it's citizens work right in Hutto. Because of the new 130 corridor highway system, it has also become an easy
commute into Austin and it is just a short hop into the high-tech employment arena of Round Rock.

you realize your dream of a healthy and vibrant lifestyle in one of the fastest growing little cities in Texas.
