In southeastern Travis County, just seven miles southeast of Austin, the community of Del Valle, Texas, is a fabulous place to live alongside the Colorado River. Established in the mid-1870s, Del Valle was built on the Santiago Del Valle land grant, hence its name. Its first post office was opened in 1878, and by the mid-1880s, Del Valle had fifty residents, two cotton gins, a general store, a steam gristmill, a school, and three churches. There were seventy-five residents by 1900, and the community continued to grow until the Great Depression. However, the town recovered in 1942 with the construction of Bergstrom Air Force Base, then known as the Del Valle Army Air Field.
The school district serving the community was eventually renamed from the Colorado district to the Del Valle district in the 1960s. Since that time, the town has continued to grow, and by 2000 it was home to nearly two thousand, five hundred residents and more than one hundred and fifty businesses. Today, Del Valle remains unincorporated, and its boundaries are not well-defined. Portions of the community have been annexed by Austin and the population today is roughly twenty thousand people. Its proximity to Austin affords residents quick and easy access to all of the big city’s exciting services, amenities, and attractions while enjoying a slightly slower pace in a less hectic atmosphere.
