Welcome to Travis Landing!

Travis Landing is a small neighborhood located along the southern shores of Lake Travis. Through many years this land on the winding Colorado River was the home of the *Comanche and other early native Americans. Completion of the Mansfield Dam in the 1940's created Lake Travis and Hudson Bend, named after Wiley Hudson, who built a ranch home in the area in the 1800's. Picture of entrance to Travis Landing

In 1943, Joe and Margaret Cocke purchased 56 acres which, in 1960, was subdivided as "Travis Landing." The Cocke Family established a lake residence in 1947. The Cocke Horse Farms held annual Hunter and Jumper shows from 1949 to 1951. Participants came from near and far to enjoy the shows as well as the beauty of Lake Travis.

About the Entrance to Travis Landing

In 1951, Lake Travis reached the historical low of 614.19 feet. A huge tree floated ashore and was placed at the entrance to Travis Landing, where it rested until 2003. Due to decay, the entrance was redesigned in 2003. The new design was created by Ralph White, who was designated by the 78th Texas Legislature as the Texas State Artist of 2003. A new log, donated from the Travis Landing property of Robert and Aleen Woodard, was placed atop the new entrance.

Join the Neighbors Mailing List

An email distribution list has been created exclusive to Travis Landing property owners. This list makes it easy to disseminate general information to the neighborhood, such as changes posted to the website or publications normally mailed, such as the newsletter. It is used to quickly send out important notices to TLPOA list members, and also to provide a vehicle for exchange of information, such as publishing a notice of an upcoming garage sale or neighborhood news. All you have to do is create an email as you normally would, then address it to neighbors@tlpoa.org.

After you subscribe to the list you will receive an email welcoming you to the list. To learn more about the mailing list, go to http://mail.tlpoa.org/mailman/listinfo/neighbors_tlpoa.org. Please use the Email Sign Up Form to subscribe or unsubscribe to the list.
