About Bastrop County 

Bastrop County was originally established in 1834 by the provincial legislature of Coahuila y Tejas. Both Bastrop County and the county seat, Bastrop, were originally named Mina, but the county was renamed Bastrop and incorporated in 1837 by Sam Houston. The name Bastrop was given to the county to honor early Dutch settler, Felipe Enrique Neri, Baron de Bastrop, who helped Stephen F. Austin obtain land grants in Texas. There are just four cities in Bastrop County, including the county seat. All other places in the county are unincorporated communities or census-designated places. The average property tax rate in Bastrop County is 1.89%, which is just a bit higher than the state-wide average. However, residents of Bastrop, Elgin, and Smithville will pay significantly higher rates between 2.5% and 2.8%. The overall average is lower due to the large number of unincorporated communities and census-designated places that do not pay taxes to as many taxing districts.
