Burleson
County is a rural county in Central Texas with a population of about 18,000. Burleson County is centrally located in the Texas Triangle and is located within 1 hour of Austin, 90 minutes of Houston and less than 3 hours from San Antonio and Dallas/Ft. Worth. The economy of Burleson County has in many areas outperformed the economy of Texas as a whole. There has been excellent economic growth in the county during the last ten years, with the city of Caldwell, the county seat, leading the way. Burleson County's diversified economy has made it the envy of rural counties in Texas. Because of our strategic location to the four-lane highway of State Highway 21 and State Highway 36, Burleson County has enjoyed the migration of several major manufacturing companies. Manufacturing has become increasingly more important in the county to the point of rivaling agriculture in economic importance. The county also enjoys a major rail head for the shipping of goods and products by train. Caldwell, the county seat, has an unregulated FAA airport with a runway of 3200 feet.

 

 

Burleson County has seen a significant increase in technology with the arrival of several manufacturing firms. Some of the products produced by major county manufactures include aluminum extrusion, precious metal reclamation, custom metal fabrication, and is home to several petroleum service companies.
