Living In Hyde Park
Located a handful of blocks north of the University of Texas, Hyde Park Texas is over 95% single-family residential buildings. Originally touted as a neighborhood for Austin’s elite in the middle and late 19th century with large luxurious homes, the area shifted to a working person’s community, with rustic bungalows and modest frame houses. Those contrasting architectural styles dominate the area today and give it a heart-warming character, filled with:
It’s All About the History
In 1990, the Elizabeth Ney Museum, Fire House, and 42 historic buildings in Hyde Park were added to the National Register of Historic Places. The pride of the community led to many residents restoring homes and buildings through hard work and dedication. Of course, no good deed goes without a celebration. In October each year, you can participate in the Fire Station Festival which celebrates the protection of Fire House No. 9 and the historic buildings in general. Costumes, food, and a high school band highlight the event.
