    Join us as we learn about the history of our wonderful city!

    Kat Howell is an 8th generation Texan and her Leander roots can be traced back to her 4th great-grandfather, Colonel C.C. Mason. The man who led the initial wagon train to the area that became known as Bagdad and later as Leander. She was born January 1, 1969, and was deemed citizen number 257,509 and that year’s New Year’s Baby for the city of Austin. Her family made sure that Kat grew up in a world where history was alive and active every day. She tagged along with family as they explored and interviewed people whose memories stretched back to the cattle drive era and to archeological digs. This led to a deep understanding of local history and a passion for sharing it with others.

    Kat is the co-author of 3 books, the most recent, Historical Leander, Texas. Her favorite book, Images of America Austin Texas is 22 years old and still going strong.

    "I absolutely love Leander and its rich history. I have a passion to make sure every new person that moves to Leander has the opportunity to get to know this history too." – Kat Howell
