Nestled along the Interstate 35 corridor between Austin and San Marcos TX, you
truly get the best of both worlds here: modern metropolitan living and rural
sensibilities. While several subdivisions have sprouted up in and around Buda, The Outdoor
Capital Of Texas still boasts the small-town feel of its historic and cozy downtown.

The Central Texas climate is moderate compared to most areas of Texas and the
rest of the South. While humidity rarely approaches that of Houston, Dallas, or even
San Antonio, it can get pretty muggy in Buda during the summer. The good news is,
there is often a gentle breeze to temper the heat, and always plenty of
places to visit that feature lots of trees to find some shade in which to relax.

Buda falls into the Home Rule City category, which is led by a Council-Manager form of
Public servants are elected citywide and elected members must reside within
the city limits. Buda became an official city in 1948, although the town was formally
established on April Fool's Day 1881 when land for a town site was donated by Cornelia
Trimble at a railroad depot here. The area was originally settled by Phillip Allen as
part of the Mexican land grant to Stephen B. von Eggleston around 1846.
