Situated on the Colorado River, Bastrop values its historic roots yet embraces the changes the development is bringing. It has more than 125 homes with historic markers and medallions that add an old time charm and picturesque beauty. Its mission is to "make Bastrop the best community in the nation through preservation of the past and progress for the future."
The City of Bastrop is beautiful with the Colorado River that runs through it and the beautiful pines and historical homes. Gift and antique stores line the main street so it is a great place to explore.
