Description of the Town: Leander is primarily a bedroom community of Austin on the North side of the city close to Round Rock. It was popular in the 1990’s as a quick drive into town so many small communities sprang up. There are still large land tracts around the area but most of the roads are connecting the back roads fast.
The saying used to be, “Pray for me, I drive 183.” But 183 has changed over the past 20 years into a very nice thoroughfare. Located in the heart of Central Texas off Hwy. 183, Leander remains close to its roots even as it finds itself on the brink of a new future. The growth of Leander over the past few years has been phenomenal, as the Leander Independent School District has become the largest school district in Williamson County and the fastest growing school district in Texas.
