Characterized for its notable Victorian architecture in the commercial and residential areas, Georgetown is home to the oldest university in the state, Southwestern University. If you’re looking to learn more about the city’s original architecture, you can visit the downtown historic district and admire its centerpiece, the Beaux-Arts Williamson County Courthouse, one of the best preserved Victorian and pre-World War I homes. Due to the expansion of Austin in the 20th century, Georgetown’s population quickly grew as residential, commercial, and industrial development accelerated. Fortune Small Business ranked Georgetown as the second-best city to “live and launch” a new business in the nation. Although Georgetown is considered a historic area, that has not stopped Georgetown Utility Systems from advancing their work in reducing carbon footprint by supplying all of its customers with wind and solar power in 2017, making the city 100% green-powered.
