Before the dam was built to form Lake Marble Falls on the Colorado River, there were falls of marble giving the name Marble Falls to the city.  The falls are now under water and only visible on those rare occasions when LCRA lowers the lake for repairs.

A fast growing town of 6,500, with over 10,000 population in a 7 mile radius, Marble Falls is going through a period of prosperity and growth.  Because of the growth, there are not as many homes available for sale or rent in town right now.  Marble Falls is in a stage of development now that offers some of the best of the big city life without the disadvantages of the fast pace and traffic problems of Austin or San Antonio.  It is an interesting mixture of a rural lifestyle with big city conveniences only 40 minutes away.
