The results of tremendous growth in Williamson County as a whole are especially easy to see in Liberty Hill. While growth and change are common buzzwords in present-day Liberty Hill, it’s a deep-rooted connection to our historic past that makes us different from other cities in Central Texas. New residents come from all over to relate to those“simpler times” again.
Nestled between the North and South forks of the San Gabriel River,remnants of small ranching and farming villages have evolved over the past 175 years into one of the fastest growing communities in the Austin metro area. Families and businesses are locating to the Liberty Hill area today for the same reasons they did throughout history — the beauty of the rolling hills along the Shin Oak Ridge, good schools and plenty of opportunity!
Today, Liberty Hill has several upscale neighborhoods being built around downtown. Current residents are trying to preserve Liberty Hill’s charm and history throughout all this growth. Downtown Liberty Hill still has many of their original buildings, a few of them restored.
One of the fastest-growing cities and areas in Texas, our robust economy is turning heads and improving lives. With a trade area population of over 38,000 and an average household income of almost$125,000, the opportunities feel endless. Our city is filled with entrepreneurs who wanted to escape the big city lifestyle but still have the amenities their families and employees enjoy.
Liberty Hill is home to many fantastic businesses that enrich our lives every day. From salons to fashion, it’s easy to find what you are looking for on the hill.
It also means freedom to learn and appreciate arts and culture. From our acclaimed Whimsy and Wonder festival to our world-renowned Liberty Hill International Sculpture Park, our residents have the opportunity to do this every day.
