Old West Austin

The Old West Austin Historic District encompasses some of the best Austin neighborhoods—Old Enfield, Pemberton Heights, and Bryker Woods. The more than forty subdivisions wind between Shoal Creek and the Mo-Pac Expressway, from 13th to 35th Streets, just northwest of downtown Austin. As a well-preserved collection of early- to mid-twentieth-century residences, the historic district evokes the measured spread of suburban development that parallels the city’s steady growth. Houses in the district, many of which were designed by prominent architects, reflect styles popular from the mid-19th through mid-20th centuries.
