This project is centered around the documentation of the area surrounding Burnet Road. This section of North Austin has been a place of culture and history for decades. Over the past decade, incoming residents (which many claim are all from California) often non-native Texans have been steadily developing new houses and businesses. The side effects from this rapid development has been rising rent costs and reduction of traffic for many businesses that have been around for decades. This is due to many reasons, as some businesses cannot change with the times, and others simply cannot produce enough income to stay open.
With this in mind, this project aims to document stores, businesses and other attractions along Burnet Rd. that might be under threat in the area. We believe this will serve to preserve the history of Austin that has been so widely known, but is slowly fading away as years continue.
