Austin American-Statesman, June 19, 1982

Mid 1960s

The City turns down landowner W.H. Bullard's offer to sell his land. That land is later developed as "Lost Creek."

I offered it to the city in the 1960s several times...I offered to sell it for interest only until they could get a bond issue and pay me off...the asking price was $300 an acre, an awful little bit of money.

— W.H. Bullard, Landowner
