Pflugerville (the ‘P’ is silent) is a small town in the greater Austin area located northeast of downtown and on the east side of IH35. It was originally settled by a German immigrant named Henry Pfluger Sr. The first commercial enterprise was a general store owned by Louis Bohls, who also was the first Postmaster. These two names are fairly prominent in Pflugerville. The newspaper is named the Pflugerville Pflag. The NBC television series ‘Friday Night Lights’ was filmed at Pflugerville High School football stadium.The Pflugerville Solar Farm is now being developed and will be the nation’s largest solar farm.

What I like about Pflugerville
Pflugerville has homes in the affordable price range for young families and is close enough to downtown Austin to take advantage of the amenities that Austin has to offer. It still has a small town feel even though it is spread out. If you get out much at all around Pflugerville, you will meet your fellow Pflugervillians, whether you are on a tennis court or a soccer field, or just sitting on a bench at a park reading a good book.
