The community was founded in 1887 by Adam Rankin Johnson, a former Confederate General and Indian fighter. He was known as “stovepipe” Johnson for tricking Union soldiers with fake cannons constructed from stove pipes and wagon wheels. During the pre-war days he was able to survey the area around Marble Falls as Burnet County surveyor and had planned on building an industrial city powered by the Colorado River. After the war and blinded by a “friendly fire” incident he was able to pursue his dream of establishing the community with the construction of a railroad to nearby Granite Mountain in 1884. With ten partners in tow, he platted the townsite and sold lots starting July 12, 1887. He built a home and a college and a large factory near the falls. Marble Falls made history by electing the first woman mayor in Texas in 1917 Ophelia Crosby “Birdie” Harwood, 3 years before women were even allowed to vote.
