Elgin is a small town about 30 minutes east of Austin. It is nice to have the closeness of Austin, but live in a smaller rural community. The cost of living allows veterinarians more real estate at a lower rate - we also do not have income tax! You can enjoy country living and have amenities of the city. Elgin has a lot of community pride with a few festivals each year - Western Days in the summer and Hogeye Festival in the fall are popular events. We are also home to two Christmas tree farms that are busy during the holiday months!
