History       

For centuries, the area's impressive waterfalls were a notable landmark for passersby, and they caught the attention and imagination of two men in the 1850s. The first but unsuccessful attempt at building a town was made by Charles S. Todd in 1854. At the same time, Adam "Stovepipe" Johnson was entranced by the potential power offered by the falls, and after serving in the Civil War, Johnson began selling Marble Falls properties in 1887. Marble Falls homes soon filled the hills, and town shops and a post office followed. Just 30 years later, the city made history by electing the country's first female mayor, Ophelia "Birdie" Harwood. The legendary falls disappeared in 1951 with the completion of the Max Starcke Dam and formation of Lake Marble Falls.
