Georgetown, Texas, with its diverse geography resulting from its location on the Balcones Escarpment, has been a highly sought after land to many groups of people. While the histories of the European settlers is largely recorded and documented, that of the Tonkawas and other Native tribes that first inhabited the area remain mostly through oral stories and geographic markers. This project includes a spatial analysis of historic Georgetown that includes important Native sites, revealing a different side of
Georgetown’s rich history.
