From the Mayor's Desk...

"Last month nearly 150 residents took part in the Heritage Trail Tours, exploring some of the historical sites around Lakeway. We opened up the historic Liebelt Cabin near City Hall and had Gwendolyn Wunneburger, a former resident of the 19 th century cabin itself come out and talk about her life living in the Lakeway area before it was a city. The 89-year old musician even played a few songs for visitors. It was a real treat. I gave a proclamation naming Friday, September 20, Gwendolyn Wunneburger Day. A few days before the tour, Gwendolyn donated several historical items to the City, which are now a part of the cabin. Our history is important. As we move forward on improving the quality of life for our residents in Lakeway with a new Comprehensive Plan and improved transportation options, we should also take time to reflect on the past."
