Del Valle Texas History:
In 1836, Santiago Del Valle built a home on land granted to him by the Mexican Government. The farming and ranching community of Del Valle grew up around his home. The Del Valle post office was established in 1878 with William Givens as postmaster. By the mid-1880s, the town had a steam gristmill, two cotton gins, a general store and 50 residents. Grains and cotton were the area’s primary crops. The town established the Colorado Common School District #6. This district was later renamed the Dell Valle ISD. Because of Austin’s 1952 annexation of approximately one third of the school district including the Montopolis area and the Austin Country Club property, the school district had to relocate the schools. To do this, Austin purchased the schools from Del Valle and moved them to their present locations. Many Del Valle residents commute to Austin for work.Unincorporated Del Valle is located on the Colorado River on SH 71 (Bastrop Highway) on the eastern edge of the Austin Bergstrom International Airport.

The Elroy track is the only FIA-certified Grade 1 track in the United States, and one of only twenty-six such tracks in the world.
