The city of Hutto prides itself on preserving its history while forging ahead in the future. It was created in 1876 on five acres of land purchased by the International and Great Northern Railroad and has since grown into a vibrant city.

The city of Hutto is embarking on a long-anticipated revitalization and development project to make the Co-Op District and Downtown the proud center of their city. Their future development will allow their residents to stay and play in Hutto, offering a big-city experience with small-town quality of life. 

Hutto, Texas has undergone a transformation over the past decade from a sleepy, rural Texas farm town of 1,250 in the year 2000 to one of Austin’s fastest growing suburbs with a population nearing 22,000 in 2016. The reason for Hutto’s exponential growth has been quality affordable housing and quality public schools coupled with the opening of SH-130. Low crime, moderate taxes, and convenient access to the Austin region have also made many people decide to call Hutto home. Hutto is minutes from the Austin Airport, the Dell Diamond, the Williamson County Expo Center, several hospitals and the Georgetown Square. Hutto is a great place for a business or a home!

Hutto is very proud that while being one of the fastest growing cities in the area, the small town feel continues to exist. Hutto is perhaps most widely known for its high school mascot – the hippo. There is quite a sense of place and one of the examples of this is the number of Hippos around town. There is even a map of the Hippo’s- much like the map of the stars homes!

Hutto is proud to offer a wide range of residential living choices, including established neighborhoods and new developments by KB Homes, Gehan Homes, Pulte, Wilshire Homes and many others.

Families will find room to play at the newly renovated Fritz Park, and the city has exciting plans for future park space as part of the Williamson County Regional Park plan, along with an amphitheater and sports fields.

Hutto is home to an award-winning independent school district, with more than 6,600 students at 10 campuses, with continuously growing enrollment. Hutto High School, home to the only hippo mascot in the country, boasts a Career and Technical Education program with numerous certifications including culinary arts, health sciences, business and veterinarian programs. They are proud of their award-winning and state-recognized art, band, music and athletic programs, a state-awarded and nationally recognized FCCLA program, and their facilities. Hutto ISD is also the only district in the area to offer a full-day Head Start program.

Hutto is also the home of the East Williamson County Higher Education Center, a multi-institutional teaching center. EWCHEC provides a wide array of educational opportunities and a workforce readiness program with the convenience of going from a certificate to a graduate degree all in one location through a partnership with Temple College, Texas State Technical College and Texas A&M University-Central Texas.

Hutto is “open for business,” and as the city aggressively and progressively pursues economic growth, it is proud to start construction on the Innovation Business Park. The Innovation Business Park will be the largest business park opened in Central Texas in the past several decades, and the city looks forward to business growing there. 

We are proud of our many businesses, but one especially has earned National acclaim. The Texan Restaurant has been featured in Southern Living Magazine and is known for its pies. You will normally find the Texan pretty busy between the hours of 3PM-5PM Tuesdays through Saturdays, for Pie Happy Hour. Hutto holds Hutto Day at the (State) Capitol, and the free slice of the Texan’s Pies make this day one of the legislators and their staff’s favorites.

As most towns do, we have festivals- Reds, Whites & Brews, Crawfish Festival, Home & Garden Show, Old Tyme Days and Treats on East Street which all fill the downtown streets with residents and visitors.

All of these facts make Hutto a great place to live and do business! Come join us!
