The first attempt to settle the Marble Falls area was made in 1854 by Charles Todd. He was unsuccessful, and the land was sold for taxes in 1880. General Adam Rankin Johnson purchased the land a few years later. People began buying land and building houses in the area in 1887. The town was called Marble Falls after the large falls nearby. It had a cotton gin and general stores by 1890. Resorts were built along Lake Marble Falls after the 1960s.
