We enjoy sharing with you a little bit about the history of the Lake Travis area here at LTL.
And if you’re familiar with the areas along Hudson Bend, nearby Steiner Ranch or Lakeway you might already know a bit about the foundation of the settling of our cherished land. Wiley Hudson was the first to purchase several plots here along the lush and abundant banks of the fertile Colorado River.
Then came the New Deal era and with it, Mansfield Dam.
Our beautiful Lake Travis was once a dream of Congressmen, construction workers and settlers, but after the building of the dam the lake became a veritable reality.
The harnessing of hydroelectric power would be able to bring electricity to the area, and with it, economic development. Without it we probably would not be here today.
