Elgin Texas Homes For Sale

Elgin Texas

Elgin texas

Elgin Texas is a historic small town of about 8,000 people near Austin, Texas with many beautiful old homes and a historic downtown. Elgin was established in 1872 and the city offices are located at 310 N. Main Street in a restored 1906 historic home as pictured above. Elgin is famous for its bricks and Hot Sausage. Elgin Texas has been recognized as the “Brick Capital of the Southwest” by the Southwest Brick Institute because Elgin has been home to the manufacture of bricks since the 1800’s and produces 267 million bricks annually. Acme Brick Company, Hanson Brick and the Elgin Butler Company all make bricks in Elgin Texas. The Southside Market and Barbeque in Elgin Texas has made Elgin Hot Sausage for more than 125 years since Henry Meyer came over from Germany 4 generations ago. Elgin has an annual Hogeye Festival the 4th Saturday in October as well as many other celebrations, parades and community events.

The Elgin Depot Museum at 14 Depot Square offers many different exhibits, a Veterans display as well as an extensive collection of photographs and archives, a Gift Shop and much more. I am planning to visit for geneological research.
