AUSTIN CLIFF NOTES

True locals, born and bread in Austin, are Unicorns.  But you can still sound like one at the water cooler with a few funs facts!

Austin is home to up 1.5 million Mexican Free-Tail bats in the summer, the largest North American bat colony.  They summer under the Congress Street bridge, so stop by at Sunset to check them out.

Whole Foods was founded in Austin in 1978 by 25-year-old college dropout John Mackey and Rene Lawson Hardy. They borrowed $45,000 to open the first store and had to live in it too!

Austin was found when in 1837 settlers founded the village of Waterloo on the banks of the Colorado River. Though still a remote and small village, in 1839 Austin was officially named the captial of the Repulic of Texas for it’s central location, beauty and abundant resources. 7,735 acres were purchased by the Texas Congress to construct the capital and begin expanding the city.

Besides the more commonly known University of Texas, Austin is home to St. Edwards University, Concordia University and Huston-Tillotson University. In addition, Austin offers accessible higher education through Austin Community College, which was opened in 1973 and has more than 40,000 students in campuses across Austin.

At 165 feet tall, they can illuminate a 1500 foot radius. You can find the surviving towners sprinkled across Austin’s older neighborhoods.

Austin wasn’t always the captial. Texas had 5+ temporary capitals before President Mirabu Lamar and the Texas Congress named Austin. Then his successor, President Sam Houston,
