WILLIAMSON COUNTY FLAG The stars on the flag surrounding
the state of Texas represent the thirty-three viable communities
identified by Clara Stearns Scarbrough in her 1973 book,
Good Water. In 1970, these communities ranged in population from
twenty people in Norman’s Crossing to more than 10,000 residents
in Taylor. It is difficult to establish how many communities
exist in Williamson County today, because the determination of
“community” is subjective and without set criteria. However, per
the Texas Association of Counties, in
Williamson County in 20014, there were eleven towns with
populations of over 1,000 people and six towns with
populations above 5,000.
