About Lockhart TX
Lockhart Texas, 78644 in Caldwell County is located 25 miles from Austin’s International Airport on Highway 183, nestled in a triangle of Central Texas between Austin, Houston, and San Antonio. Lockhart was originally part of Gonzales County which separated off into Caldwell County in the mid 1800s. It was named after surveyor Byrd Lockhart who worked as one of the surveyors setting the boundaries in Central Texas and farmed along Plum Creek. Severe drought made farming difficult at times but grazing cattle was not a problem and the area became a major converging point for the now famous Chisolm Trail.
Cattle owned from a local Lockhart area rancher was on the first cattle drive up the trail. Lockhart and surrounding areas experienced the oil boom in the 1920s and shallow field exploration still continues today. Lockhart has its own municipal airport, a beautiful State Park offering camping, swimming, bike trails and golf. There is a City Park with fishing pond, amphitheatre and a sports complex for baseball and soccer. Lockhart has it all—historic homes, stunning historic court house in the City Square, new home construction, land, and farm and ranch properties.
