Leander is the name of one of the small communities in the northwestern area of central Texas near Lake Travis and the Highland Lakes. Leander was actually originally called Bagdad, and it was established on July 17th, 1882. The community was first established around 1845 after the original settlers were given land grants in exchange for their service in the Texas Revolution. Many of the original settlers lived in log cabins, and were subjected to Indian attacks on a regular basis. Many businesses in Bagdad, as it was then called, were established in the 1850s, and the first post office was opened in 1858, after the Texas Rangers had arrived to protect the first settlers from the Indians and their frequent attacks. The Rangers built a large fort in the 1850s which slept over sixty men, ...

Excitement is growing as we count down to March 30, 2009, the scheduled date for The Capital MetroRail service to begin transporting commuters in comfort and style along the Red Line. This long awaited project, approved by voters in 2004, is a 32-mile passenger rail system built on pre-existing freight rail lines that will run between Downtown Austin and the city of Leander. The Red Line will serve nine stations providing convenient service every 30 minutes during morning and afternoon rush hours. The 9 stop station locations are Leander, Lakeline, Highland, Plaza Saltillo, Howard, Burnet/Kramer, Crestview, MLK Jr., and Downtown/Convention Center Station.

Here in Leander we are growing we have a new TOD (Transit Oriented Development) being designed and opening later this year. A strange new way to get around, a "commuter rail line" is apparently different from "light rail" allowing citizens to use the rail line to avoid the traffic. The really great part is the anchor will be like the rail station in Portland, where restaurants and shoe stores and mom and pop coffee shops are all within a few feet, residential homes on the second and third floors. Leander has tripled in size over the last 3 years, our population expectations to grow 10 fold in 10 years. The rail line will take you into Austin, to the airport, and eventually to San Antonio. It is exciting to witness a growing community, of course the news wants you to believe the markets ...

I see a battle coming!  Starbuck's is opening a store just south of Crystal Falls on old 183.  Dunkin' Donuts is opening soon in the new Lowe's center.  Who will win?  The news has been reporting sluggish sales at Starbuck's since McDonald's has started competing in the gourmet coffee trade.  I can walk to either store from where I live.  I am sure business will boom once their doors are open.  The new HEB Plus has had a store full of shoppers since opening in 2007.  look at Real Estate in Leander
