One of the city’s original neighborhoods, Old West Austin dates to the mid-19th century. Around 1916, Governor Elisha Pease’s descendants began subdividing his estate and named the area Enfield. Realtors of the day advertised it as a place where “one is removed from the noises of the city, yet a 10-minute walk or three-minute drive brings him to the city’s business district.” This aspect still holds true today for a neighborhood that’s seen significant commercial growth. Bounded by Mopac and Lamar Boulevard between Lady Bird Lake and Enfield Road, Old West Austin features narrow streets, close houses, and the 10-block state historical district of Clarksville. Says Mary Reed, president of the Clarksville Community Development Corporation: “There’s an old-fashioned neighborhood feel over here.”
Past and Present
In Clarksville, the Hezikiah Haskell House is the only remaining home that represents the kind of home freed slaves inhabited. The neighborhood association restored the now city-owned home, which was built in 1879, and hung historic photos on its walls. It boasts a community garden and serves as a venue for neighborhood gatherings. Just behind the house is the 145-year-old Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church, which still holds services. A modern addition to the area is HOPE Outdoor Gallery, a three-story educational art project where the graffiti artwork is always changing.
Clarksville and Old West Austin’s restaurants match the diversity of the neighborhood—it’s one of the few where affordable apartments share the sidewalk with multimillion-dollar mansions. At the intersection of West Lynn and 12th Street sits Nau’s Enfield Drug and Jeffrey’s. Nau’s is a 65-year-old pharmacy, with an old-fashioned soda fountain in the back, serving up breakfast and lunch. Jeffrey’s opened in 1975 with simple, seasonal food and wine and continues that fine-dining tradition today, even after reopening under new ownership in 2013. For something priced in between, check out Zocalo Cafe, which features fresh Mexican food from the owners of another Clarksville favorite, Galaxy Cafe. Walking distance to the famous Clark’s Oyster Bar!
The locally-owned shops also carry a bit of history with them. Whit Hanks Antiques is a home decor paradise, with several antique shops housed within the former Coca-Cola bottling facility. Each vendor specializes in different eras and countries, with most finds ranging from the 1790s to 1910s. At 36-year-old El Interior, shoppers can browse clothing, jewelry, and decor primarily from Mexico and Guatemala. For hard-to-find, locally-sourced grocery items and beer, pop into Fresh Plus.
Meet and Mingle
People get together throughout the sidewalks of the neighborhood, but Caffe Medici has become a gathering place for all residents. Located in an old house, the cafe offers indoor and outdoor seating. For something a little stronger than coffee, Mean Eyed Cat is one of the few bars in the area. Between the Johnny Cash–themed decor, the Stubb’s barbecue, and cocktails with names such as A Drink Named Sue, this cat offers a uniquely Austin experience.
