A Brief History of Lago Vista Brought to you by Lago Vista Electricians
Located on the Lake Travis North Shore, Lago Vista, Texas has a rich and diverse history that can be traced back to pre-historic people, various Native American tribes, and early Europeans from France and Spain.
In 1831, Stephen F. Austin settled the first families into the area known as the “Upper Colonies”, and they quickly established commerce in the area. Within a hundred years the area would see the establishment of “Lohman’s Bridge” in 1931 to connect South and North Shore. By 1937 a major change would come in the form of Marshall Ford Dam (Mansfield Dam). As local residents watched groundbreaking ceremonies little did they realize by 1941 they would see waters rise as the dam consumed local homesteads, farms, roads, and bridges once again separating north and south shore to create what is know today as Lake Travis.
Initially residents benefited from flood control, water storage, and a consistent source of drinking water. They were also resilient, with roads and bridges under water they found create ways to support their community. From 1940 – 1970 the area’s serene beauty would not be a secret for long. The beauty of the north shore would attract construction workers building infrastructure projects to military retirees wanting to settle in the tiny community. Finally, developers began taking interest in the area, specifically the recreational activities offered by Lake Austin. FM 1431 was expanded to accommodate traffic, Jonestown began to grow, and Lago Vista thrived.
Today Lago Vista, along with the other quiet communities of the North Shore continue to flourish. Rich in the arts, music concerts, recreational sports, festivals, and more this Texas Hill Country treasure is perfect for families and business.
