and this web site is dedicated to displaying that history.
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, Land of
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, in
Williamson County in 2004, there were eleven towns with
populations of over 1,000 people and seven towns with
populations above 5,000.
