It's early April 1774. A young explorer named Fernando de Austin, approaches the Pacific Ocean. He decides to make camp there. He builds a nice European-style building, which is today town hall.
He notices that the soil here is quite fertile, unlike the rest of Southern California. He decides to bring settlers here, and calls the town Austin.
Many years later in 1845, the city became a boomtown, due to the Gold Rush.
Thanks for Reading. There will be more soon.
