Lakeway's 60th Anniversary

Blue Lakeway logo with retro design for 60th anniversaryThe Lakeway Heritage Committee invites you to join us in celebrating the 60th Anniversary for the City of Lakeway! While Lakeway itself was incorporated in 1974, we celebrate the beginning of our community on July 12, 1963 when the ribbon was cut at what was then called the Lakeway Inn at the end of Lakeway Drive. Now, it's known as the popular Lakeway Resort and Spa.

The heritage committee's work is to gather and share stories, photos and artifacts, helping create a sense of pride in the heritage and development of our unique community. The committee strives to reach all ages with various annual events, including the popular Heritage Trail Tours and regular special community presentations telling the stories of the early days of the Lake Travis area all the way up to recent City of Lakeway Fourth of July parades. If you'd like to connect with members of the Lakeway Heritage Committee or attend one of their upcoming meetings, email:
