Pflugerville Texas History:
In 1849, German immigrant Henry Pfluger settled his family on 160 acres of land east of Austin. In 1853, he traded his land for a larger farm located 5 miles east of present day Pflugerville. When William Bohls founded Pflugerville in 1860, he named it after Henry. In 1872, a school was established on Henry Lisso’s farm. This farming community had no businesses until 1890 when Louis Bohls built a general store. The Pflugerville post office opened his store in 1893 with Louis as postmaster. Around 1904, George Pfluger donated land for a train depot and school and he and his son Albert platted the townsite. The 1904 arrival of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railway line connecting Austin and Georgetown spurred Pflugerville’s growth. Otto Pfluger built a cotton gin in 1904. Five years later he built a second gin and an ice factory. H.H. Pfluger built the Sky Dome Theater in 1913; the theater showed motion pictures to the accompaniment of a player piano, on Friday and Saturday nights. In 1914 the town had 500 residents. By 1849, the population had fallen to 380 as residents moved to Austin and other nearby towns. Pflugerville incorporated in 1965, causing a growth spurt. Real growth began in the late 1990s as growth in the Austin, Round Rock and Georgetown areas boomed. Pflugerville grew from 4,444 residents in 1990 to 16,335 residents in 2000. Pflugerville is located at the intersections of FM 685, IH-35, the SH 45 Toll Road and the SH 130 Toll Road, 17 miles northeast of Austin, 26 miles northeast of Hudson Bend and Lake Travis, 22.6 miles southeast of Leander, 16.6 miles southeast of Cedar Park, 7.7 miles southeast of Round Rock, 19 miles southeast of Georgetown, 56 miles south of Killeen, 48 miles southwest of Belton, 29.3 miles southwest of Granger, 18.4 miles southwest of Taylor, 22.4 miles southwest of Elgin, 18 miles southwest of Coupland, 40 miles northwest of Bastrop, 22 miles northwest of Webberville, and 28 miles north of Elroy, Texas.
