This month, we’re spotlighting the Brentwood Neighborhood of Austin, Texas.  This North Central Austin enclave is bordered by Burnet Road on the west, Lamar Boulevard on the east, 45th Street on the south and Justin Lane on the north.  Austin annexed the majority of Brentwood in 1946 and established Brentwood Park in 1951, which is located next to Brentwood Elementary.  It is a popular area with singles and families who want to be close to Central Austin, but still able to commute to points North of the city.

The neighborhood began life as a cotton farm until the city bought the land and built Brentwood Elementary in the early 1950's.  The neighborhood was originally popular with GI's who settled down there to start their families after World War II.  Brentwood retains many of the burger joints and bars that were around for those GI’s to relax in, many of which have been in place since the 1930’s.

There are also a lot of new developments sprouting up in Brentwood, such as a new Little Woodrow’s location and Burnet Flats, a 179-apartment mixed use community.  So there’s something for everyone in this Austin gem!
