The City of Bee Cave is rich in history. The City, as we know it today, did not exist until 1987, but the idea of an area where people could live without the influence of “big city” government has been the area’s “calling card” for over 140 years. As early as the 1850s, Dietrich Bohls moved from Austin to his new home at the confluence of Barton Creek and Little Barton Creek. The population of Austin had reached 900 people, and Mr. Bohls was looking for a place to raise his family away from the confines of the city and its influence. At the time, the land west of Austin still had Indians roaming over it; therefore, other settlers in the area were scarce. The Bohls family was one of the first families to settle on the land that would become the City of Bee Cave. The area derived its name from the colonies of Mexican honeybees that lived in the banks of Barton Creek and Little Barton Creek that encompassed a large area of Western Travis County. In 1987, the City of Bee Cave administration had its humble, but proud, beginning in a nondescript portable building. The City of Bee Cave encompassed a two-square mile area with 8,800 acres of extraterritorial jurisdiction. The 1990 population was approximately 214 people, and the establishment of the City of Bee Cave was official.
Today, the City of Bee Cave has an estimated population of 3,925 (2010 estimate) and 2,445.52 incorporated acres (2004 estimate). The city’s total appraised value has grown approximately 400% in the past seven years. Bee Cave officials manage this growth by providing the services and amenities the citizens seek. The New City Hall’s innovative two story design features 10,000 square feet of municipal offices, 5,000 sq ft of community space, a 5,000 sq ft Public Library, and approximately 9,500 sq ft of expansion space. The City Council has also adopted a Parks and Open Space Master plan and will begin construction in 2008 for a 50-acre Central Park located in the heart of the city.
