Overview

Bee Cave is a small town of about 5,000 residents located where Highway 71 joins with FM 620 and FM 2244. Early settlers named the area after they discovered a large cave of wild bees. In 1870, a post office opened, and the town began developing rapidly into the 1880s, with a steam gristmill, a cotton gin, a general store, a church, and a school. The population ebbed and flowed until more recent times, when it grew substantially as a western alternative to Austin living.

Today, it is a prime example of a city-close, hill country lifestyle, with ample conveniences mixed in with neighborhoods that emphasize the natural beauty of the area. Residents may work in Bee Cave or have a reasonable commute to Austin. Notably, The Texas House of Representatives declared Bee Cave as the “West Pole” of the earth in 2007, due to its location of 30 degrees, 18.25’ North and 97 degrees, 56.28’ West.
