Georgetown is located in the state of Texas and a city in Williamson County and was considered to be the seventh fastest-growing city in the United States as of 2019. It is close to Austin, and the oldest university in Texas, Southwestern University, was founded in 1840 and is located in the city. The city is notable for its extensive array of commercial and residential Victorian architecture. A local ordinance was passed in 1976 to recognize and protect the historic central business district. Georgetown is referred to as the "Red Poppy Capital of Texas" for the red poppy wildflowers that are found all over the city. The area where the present-day Georgetown is located was inhabited since the later part of the Ice Age can be linked to the Paleo-Indian culture, or the Clovis Culture, that appeared around 9200 B.C. and the earliest can be traced in 11,500 B.C. up to the end of the glacial period.
