Perhaps you’re intrigued by the possibility of living in a breathtakingly preserved Victorian home within steps of “The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas.” Or you find it appealing to share your hometown with Georgetown’s amazing collection of late 19th century Victorian homes, early 20th century cottages and bungalows built in the 1920’s.
Old Town in Georgetown, Texas, has it all.
Century old oak trees shade our streets while proximity to Southwestern University adds to the appeal of this charming area. A local historic ordinance protects the downtown Square, while zoning ordinances discourage commercial encroachment that would destroy the integrity of the older residential areas. The State of Texas and the National Register of Historic Places have awarded historical designations to individual structures, sites and neighborhoods throughout the city.
While many of the homes have been restored combining contemporary features with the charm of the early 20th century, for those who have dreamed of restoring an old home, there are opportunities here for you. You can see some current Old Town listings here.
But for those of you who are like me, who prefer new and newer homes with all the conveniences, you’ll find the retirement lifestyle of Sun City, Berry Creek, Heritage Oaks and other neighborhoods to your liking.
Join me for an Old Town Walking or Driving Tour!
When you visit to explore your Georgetown Retirement, I’d love to show you my Old Town favorites in the Belford Historic District. Named in honor of master builder Charles S. Belford, it’s just 8 blocks in size and seventy-three of the district’s 81 structures are at least half a century old. We’ll also see the University Avenue/Elm Street Historic District where several of the city’s most financially successful and socially prominent families erected large Victorian frame.
Georgetown TX Retirement is not about living in the past.

Austin may be the self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital of the World,” and offers the best selection of performing arts in the region; however, Georgetown’s annual food and arts festivals, independently-owned restaurants, rodeo, nearby wineries, neighborhood social events, and Georgetown TX community activities keep residents close to home.
