Many settlers were attracted to the area due to the abundance of timber and the fresh clean water. Named after George Washington Glasscock, he was the one that donated the land for the new town. The settlers were also attracted to the fertile and cheap land. Georgetown is the county seat of Williamson County, which was established on March 13, 1848. For most of the 19th and 20th centuries, Georgetown was primarily known as an agrarian community. In March 2015, Georgetown announced that their municipal-owned utility, Georgetown Utility Systems, would start purchasing 100% of its power for its customers from wind and solar farms by 2017. This makes the city a completely green-powered community.
