Settled by early American and Swedish pioneers who were attracted to the area’s wealth of timber and clean water, Georgetown is now the county seat of Williamson County. Home to roughly 75 thousand Texans, Georgetown is a beautiful city, positioned just 25 miles north of Austin. As of 2019, Georgetown ranked as America’s 7th fastest growing city, offering a small town feel with the convenience of being just outside the state capital.
Like much of Central Texas, Georgetown experiences long, hot summers and mild winters, rarely dropping below freezing.
