Hutto is famously known for being the Hippo Capital of Texas, as there are over 3,000 concrete hippos around the city. Established in 1876 and named after James Emory Hutto, the International-Great Northern Railroad passed through land, marking the town on the United States map. The historic downtown area sheds light on the agricultural community that once resided here, and features the renovated cotton gin that attracts events and hosts weekly farmers markets. When visiting the walkable Hutto Co-Op District development, you can find a range of activities and offerings for all ages, including high-density residential, retail, entertainment, hotel, amphitheater, movie theater and restaurants, along with a civic center and offices.
