Rollingwood, Texas, located a few miles south of Austin, Texas in Travis County, is a relatively new town to Texas yet it is a town full of residents with pride for their community. This Austin suburb was only recently created and has taken pride in the fact that it has always maintained its own municipal services. It is a town full of civic responsibility and great passion for government.
Rollingwood was founded in 1955 by George B. Hatley. Hatley founded the town and proceeded to develop the area, creating the whole community himself. The small idyllic community that he created slowly brought in new residents. By 1965, the town was incorporated and had a population of almost 400 people. The residents decided on a mayor-council form of government and from the very beginning have been known to be very impassioned on all the works and acts of the government.
By 1970, this impassioned viewpoint of their city had attracted enough new residents to nearly double their population to almost 800 people. From the beginning, the municipality strove to be independent of the larger cities around them, specifically Austin. For this reason Rollingwood maintained its own police and fire departments.
Rollingwood continued to grow at a steady pace. In 1980 there were approximately 1100 residents. By 1990, there were almost 1300 residents. This number had grown again by the year 2002 to a level of almost 1400 residents.
The civic pride and close proximity to Austin have always made Rollingwood a popular and expensive place for real estate. It is for this reason that Rollingwood, possibly more than any other Austin suburb, has resisted the effects of the recent housing crisis and recession. In fact, Rollingwood has not only resisted housing value decline, it is actually continued to increase, in terms of housing value, up to the level that it currently is.
While the average home price throughout Texas is only $120,000, the average home price in Rollingwood is currently around $450,000 while in the year 2000 the average home price in Rollingwood was only approximately $250,000. The level of increase that Rollingwood has shown in its average home price throughout the recession is unmatched by any of the other Austin area suburbs. Because of this Rollingwood typically has less home sales than other Austin suburbs which shows that the desirability of the area is such that most residents do not want to leave.
