History of the Upper Boggy Creek Neighborhoods: Delwood II

By Vanessa Ronsonette

The Delwood II neighborhood is a beautiful, tree-filled oasis surrounded by IH-35 to the west, the old Mueller Airport property to the north and east, and Airport Boulevard to the south. The neighborhood consists of seven square blocks with 175 homes built in the late 1940’s, the 90-unit Princeton Apartments, two churches, and a limited area zoned for businesses located on the IH-35 access road.

The homes are primarily owner-occupied, and most have been remodeled and well maintained. The residents reflect Austin’s diverse population with a mixture of young families, original homeowners, gay households, and every major ethnic, racial and religious group. The Delwood II Neighborhood Association represents the neighborhood politically and hosts numerous social activities, including the city’s oldest (45 years in 2002) Fourth of July neighborhood parade and celebration.
