Overview of Elgin

Located just 26 miles east of downtown Austin, the city of Elgin is one of the best communities to live, work and play in Texas. Known as both the "Sausage Capital of Texas" and the "Brick Capital of the Southwest," this area has attracted plenty of residents and visitors to the Lone Star State over the years. However, one of the main reasons why residents are giving Elgin apartments for rent a second look is because of the thriving industries that have brought economic stability to the community in recent years. In fact, Elgin is growing exponentially, especially in regards to population. According to City-Data, Elgin has seen a more than 43 percent growth from 2000 to 2010, showing that this is a community that many people want to be part of.

Living in Elgin, TX

Like many other communities in Texas, the origins of Elgin are rooted in the railroad. Indeed, the city was created by the Houston and Texas Central Railroad and named after Robert Morris Elgin, the railroad's land commissioner. Because of its easy access to rail, the city became purveyors and master of the cotton and brick trade during the turn of the 20th century, shipping goods across the Southwest. Today, Elgin still maintains a pro-business atmosphere and bustling work ethic, as the city's unemployment rate is lower than the national average, according to 2012 data. Another reason many people like to live here is its affordability. According to City-Data, the cost of living index is eight points below the U.S. rate, meaning you can live here and still have plenty of cash left in your wallet.

Elgin Attractions and Special Events

Elgin is home to many exciting and unique festivals for residents to enjoy, including the city's Music and Movies in the Park Series from March to July and Market Days held on the first Saturday of each month from February to November. However, the biggest Elgin event is Western Days Festival held in the summer that features a parade, pageant and dance as well as a carnival for the kids.
