MARBLE FALLS

Whether you’re visiting for a weekend or moving here for a lifetime…

Marble Falls sits on the banks of Lake Marble Falls. The falls were formed by a shelf of limestone running diagonally across the river that was mistaken for Marble due to its dark color. The falls were actually three distinct formations with a drop of some 50 feet through the limestone strata. The falls for which the City is named are now underwater, but are revealed every few years when the lake is lowered by the Lower Colorado River Authority for repairs. The natural lake was covered when the Colorado River was dammed with the completion of Max Starcke Dam in 1951. Lake Marble Falls sits between Lake LBJ to the north and Lake Travis to the south. 

With a population of approximately 7,200, Marble Falls is centrally located only 45 minutes from Austin or Georgetown and about an hour from San Antonio. With an additional population of 10,000 in a seven mile radius, Marble Falls is going through a period of prosperity and growth and is in a stage of development now that offers some of the best of the big city life without the disadvantages of the fast pace and traffic problems of Austin or San Antonio.
