In creating today’s Bryson, we have taken every effort to show respect for the history of the Bryson family and prepare their land for the next generation of pioneers.
J.C. and Nancy Bryson established the area in 1872, building the first two rooms of their farmstead using cedar from Bastrop and limestone from the San Gabriel River. Originally, the 800‑acre farm was used for livestock grazing, cash crops and family meals, but it eventually transitioned to a cotton farm. J.C. and Nancy’s great‑grandson, Bobby, was born on the property, and he and his wife Pat became prominent citizens of Leander.
There’s a charm to Leander that you just don’t find in other places. It’s a place where you hear “Ma’am” & “Sir,” where cowboy boots aren’t out of place and where time seems to slow down as you visit with a friend. No wonder Leander has been named one of the best places to live in Texas!
