WHY IS AUSTIN SO HAUNTED?
Known for having the largest bat colony in the world, Austin’s journey began with the Native Americans, who made their lives on the land until the European settlers came in, staking claim to it. From that moment on, Austin became a battleground of the old wild west with war after war for independence and ownership of the land.
In the 1830s, pioneers started settling in central Austin along the Colorado River. By 1836 Texas fought and won independence from Mexico and Waterloo, as Austin was named at the time, replaced Houston as the state’s capital. Not long after this, the city was renamed Austin after the “Father of Texas” founder Stephen Austin.
After the American Civil War, Austin underwent an economic and population growth spurt. The Railway was put in, making Austin a significant trading post with the ability to transport cotton and cattle.
In the early 20th century, social segregation reared its ugly head between the Anglo-Saxon, African American, and Mexican people.
As time passed, Austin became one of the safest and happiest cities in the country. However, with all good comes the bad, and the bloodshed and turbulence from the early days of the struggling settlers left marks on Austin’s history that are now reminders of the savage way of life lived back in those wild west days.
