Austin is the capital of Texas in the United States. Austin, the state’s fourth-biggest city, sprang from the riverbank town of Waterloo in a buffalo-hunting zone inhabited by Tonkawa and Comanche peoples. Scouts chose it as the permanent capital of the Republic of Texas in 1839, and it was renamed after Stephen F. Austin, the republic’s founder. Austin was established in 1840, with a population of 856 people. When a Mexican invasion threatened Texas in 1842, the government relocated to Houston, but residents of Austin, anxious to protect Austin as the state capital, staged the so-called Archive War, forcefully holding official papers.
