Barton Hills, Austin, Texas

Owing its name to William "Uncle Billy" Barton, this Austin, Texas neighborhood was originally set up in the 19th century as a pioneer homestead near the natural springs of the Colorado river. Bordered by South Lamar to the east, Loop 1 to the west, Capital of Texas Highway to the south, and Barton Springs Road to the north.

First developed in the 1940s, this neighborhood's hills and wide, meandering streets are home to houses large and small, as well as apartments, condo conversions, and local businesses. Residents are close to everything, including Austin's Zilker Park, Town Lake, Downtown Austin, and many of Austin's major roads and freeways.
Zilker Park, located on Barton Springs Road, is home to the annual Austin City Limits Music Festival.
