In 1839, the settlement around the Colorado River in Texas was incorporated under the name of “Waterloo,” but it was changed shortly after to “Austin” in honor of Stephen F. Austin who was the Republic of Texas’ first secretary of state, also known as the “Father of Texas.” Today, Austin is known as a center for business and technology with many Fortune 500 companies putting headquarters or regional offices there such as Google, Apple Inc., Amazon, IBM, and Intel.
