Bell, who was one of the originating old three hundred colonists moving to Texas in the early 19th Century. This city is located in the center of Austin County with a very small population; less than 5,000 people in 2010. Today’s population is still in that range.

That’s for the beer drinkers who are looking for that one place that will set itself in their memories. For more than a decade, the Huff family has been pleasing the palate of those who enjoy a great beer.
The Austin County Jail Museum is another wonderful place to visit. Although it closed service in 1982, it is a historical county landmark dubbed so in 1976 and added to the national register in 1980.
