Pflugerville is on Farm Road 1825 fifteen miles north of Austin in northeastern Travis County. It was named for Henry Pfluger, who brought his family to the area from Germany in 1849.
Residents established a school in 1872 and a Lutheran church in 1875.
The Pflugerville Pflag began publication in 1980. From 1980 through 1988, new development in Pflugerville made it the fastest growing community in the state. After a slight slowdown during the recession of the late 1980’s, the tremendous growth resumed again during the 1990’s.
While Pflugerville continues to grow with an estimated population of 51,894 (US Census), it has not lost it's small town charm. In 2013, Pflugerville was ranked one of the Best Places to Live by Money Magazine. - City of Pflugerville Website.
