Downtown & Tourism

About Old Town

Old Town refers to Hutto's historic district, bound loosely by P
arkDowntownStreet to the east, Orgain Street to the south, the Co-Op site to the west, and north just past the intersection of Church Street and FM 1660. With charming structures dating back to the 1800's, Old Town truly is the Heart of Hutto. 

Downtown Commercial Historic District
Downtown is home to a number of local businesses, shops and restaurants that attract Hutto residents and visitors alike.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Hutto Commercial Historic District consists of twelve buildings occupying approximately half of a city block in the heart of Hutto, Texas, approximately 27 miles northeast of Austin.  Most of the buildings are good examples of the Late Victorian Italianate style of the 1890's, and the early 20th century Commercial Style, applied to one-part and two-part commercial blocks. The buildings are constructed of brick with commercial storefronts composed of wood, glass and brick, and most retain a high degree of integrity.  Of the twelve buildings, ten are contributing resources and two are non-contributing.  The district constitutes the entirety of the historic central business core of the once-small town, which has experienced meteoric population growth of over 1000% in the decade since 2000.  

Parked cars line East and Farley Streets on any given day, as the lunchtime crowd packs nearby restaurants. The Co-Op property, an iconic reminder of the City's agriculturally-focused past, stands as the future site of a new City Hall.  The Gin at the Co-Op District is now used as an open air market space for events and festivals.
The Gin is the temporary home of Hutto's most recent public art acquisition, a limestone scuplture of a stylized cotton gin, representing Hutto's agricultural past.
