Austin and Lake Travis are two places connected by their history, people, and culture. Founded in 1839, Austin was the youngest capital city in the nation at that time. It was growing quickly, thanks to its location on the Colorado River, which flows into Lake Travis. In fact, it is still one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas today.
