City of Burnet, Texas website
The City of Burnet is a picturesque city located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country near the Highland Lakes, just 50 miles northwest of Austin and 90 miles north of San Antonio at the intersection of State Highway 29 and U.S. Highway 281. This small town of 6,000 residents has accomplished tasks many thought to be difficult or even impossible for any rural community, much less one of this size. Through the vision and perseverance of governing officials, city staff, and a community willing to embrace the effort, Burnet has grown the community and the economy while maintaining the ambience and culture so dear to our citizens.
Burnet is a community built upon the strength of its people. Since its establishment in the 1800’s the settlers of what was then a rugged and dangerous frontier, fought against the hardships of everyday life to make Burnet a flourishing place to live and work. This is still true in many ways and just as those settlers did so many years ago, the government and citizens of Burnet keep that same ever-evolving vision.
The city offers a myriad of amenities for our citizens including broad ranging recreational opportunities, an excellent school district, Seton Highland Lakes Hospital, close proximity to higher education, an outstanding airport with 5,000 ft. runway, unique shopping, museums, historic district, and exciting annual festivals.
