The City of Lockhart is located 30 miles south of Austin, 65 minutes northeast of San Antonio, and two hours west of Houston on the edge of one of the fastest-growing regions of Texas, the Austin-San Antonio Corridor. Lockhart has a small-town atmosphere but is taking advantages of big opportunities, such as the new State Highway 130, the reliever route to I-35. Lockhart is an authentic Texas small town of 13,000 residents, a community with character and charm. Many Austin residents make the short drive to Lockhart on a regular basis to sample its famous Texas barbecue, but there is much more to this rural community to keep people coming back. With local and state parks, libraries, museums, and a robust school system, there is much to do and enjoy for residents and visitors. Prepared for a diversified economy, this bustling area features three industrial parks, job training, and a well-trained and educated labor base. Lockhart is growing with well-planned development, and the community is eager to diversify its economy by strengthening an industrial base.
