Bee Cave Real Estate

In the early 1850s, Dietrich Bohls grew tired of the bright lights, big-city feel of Austin. After all, the town was bustling with 900 people, and Mr. Bohls wanted to raise his kids in a quieter, healthier environment. He found a scenic spot a full day’s ride away from Austin, and claimed 40 acres on upper Barton Creek. The family farmed and raised goats and the original cabins they built and lived in still exist today. Kitchens were usually built separately from living quarters, because they had an alarming tendency to catch fire. Along the banks of Barton Creek, colonies of Mexican honeybees created huge hives that folks referred to as “caves.” At first, the Bohls were the only settlers, but as more families heard about the place and moved in, it was referred as “the Bee Caves area.” When a post office was built in 1870, the town was officially named Bee Cave. Several of these buildings are still in existence to visit. Not but a few miles away and outside the city limits are national and private parks that offer tours of the local bee caves, footprints of dinosaurs and natural caverns including the crystal clear waters and waterfalls. The beauty of this area is one of spectacular level.
