Waterloo History

Vice President Mirabeau B. Lamar visited Waterloo during a buffalo-hunting expedition in 1838, he proposed that the republic's capital, then located in Houston, be relocated near the present-day Ann W Richards Congress bridge in what is now, central Austin. In 1839, the site was officially chosen as the seventh and final location for the capital of the Republic of Texas. It was incorporated under the name "Waterloo". Shortly thereafter, the name was changed to Austin in honor of Stephen F. Austin, the "Father of Texas" and the republic's first secretary of state.
