About City of Jarrell

The City of Jarrell is located north of Austin, Texas along Interstate 35 in the beautiful hill country. We are uniquely positioned for growth, have one of the top rated school districts in the state plus plenty of affordable land and homes!

In the 21st century, Jarrell has embarked on a period of expansion and transition… expansion in both population and commercial interests and transition from a traditional agricultural base to a more diverse economy.

While cotton, corn and cattle served the settlers of Northern Williamson County well in 1800s and 1900s, new commercial enterprises such as light manufacturing, limestone quarrying and many others, to include transportation, will dominate the next years.

Adjacent to the new State Highway 130 and Parmer Lane Extension projects, Jarrell is well placed for easy transshipment of products to southern ports and northern markets.
