Bastrop County is located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 74,171.[1] Its county seat is Bastrop.[2] The county was created in 1834 as a municipality of Mexico and organized as a county in 1837.[3][4] It is named for Felipe Enrique Neri, Baron de Bastrop, an early Dutch settler who helped Stephen F. Austin obtain land grants in Texas.

Bastrop County is included in the AustinRound Rock, Texas, metropolitan statistical area.

In September 2011, Bastrop County suffered the most destructive wildfire in Texas history, which destroyed over 1,600 homes.

Boundary changes

From January 8, 1836 to December 13, 1837, the Municipality and County of Mina consisted of parts of present-day Mason, Kimble, Llano, Burnet, Williamson, Gillespie, Blanco, Comal, Hays, Travis, Caldwell, Bastrop, Lee, Gonzales, Fayette, Washington, and Lavaca Counties. On December 14, 1837, the second Congress of the Republic of Texas passed legislation changing the geographical limits, creating Fayette County, removing Gonzales and Caldwell Counties from the boundaries and, five months later, added parts of Kimble and Comal Counties. On December 18, 1837, Sam Houston signed an act incorporating the town of Mina, and on the same day, changing the name of the county and town of Mina to Bastrop. May 24, 1838, to January 24, 1840, shows the borders of Bastrop County to contain parts of present-day Blanco, Burnet, Williamson, Travis, Hays, Comal, Caldwell, Bastrop, Lee, Gonzales, and Fayette counties. From January 25, 1840, to January 25, 1850, the border changed to almost its present size with a small portion of Lee, Williamson, Caldwell, Gonzales, and Fayette Counties included.[5]
