About Marble Falls
Marble Falls is a small Texas town in the Highland Lakes Region of the Texas Hill Country. Founded in 1887, its first settlers took advantage of nearby Granite Mountain and the Colorado River to build an economy at the turn of the century, with the town’s population exploding in the decade after its founding. In 1917, Marble Falls became the first Texas town to elect a woman as Mayor, and Ophelia Crosby "Birdie" Harwood took office 3 years before women’s suffrage was established in the United States. The town remained relatively sleepy until the end of World War II when a boom in population doubled the town’s size. Growth continued at a steady clip until the present when Marble Falls retained its “small town” status without sacrificing the amenities and luxuries of a larger, more cosmopolitan city.
