About Bouldin Creek
Bouldin Creek was developed in the early part of the twentieth century. Most homes were built in the 1920s, but historic Victorian residences can be found sprinkled among the typical cottages and bungalows. The area was considered to be on the ‘outskirts’ of Austin in the ’20s and ’30s. Noted for it’s diversity, the neighborhood is home to a wide variety of people and cultures.
Where is Bouldin Creek?
Bouldin Creek neighborhood is located just south of Lady Bird Lake and Auditorium Shores in South Central Austin. Literally a stone’s throw from downtown (assuming you can throw a stone across the lake) the area is bounded by South Congress on the east, Bouldin Creek at South Lamar on the west and Oltorf on the south. While it’s still in the 78704 zip code, you’ll find people referring to it as part of SoCo (South Congress). In fact it existed long before the catchy SoCo and the all-volunteer Bouldin Creek neighborhood association is one of the oldest in Austin, being founded in 1971.
