Marble Falls is a U.S. city in Burnet County, Texas. Adam Rankin Johnson, a former confederate general and Indian fighter, founded this city in 1887. The retired general had envisioned this place as an industrial city while working as a Burnet County Surveyor before the war. In 1884, Johnson facilitated the construction of a railway to Granite Mountain. Johnson went ahead and established a college, a factory, and a home. In 1917, Marble Falls elected Ophelia Cosby as the first woman mayor in Texas. The city was named after Marble Falls. After a drought in the 1950s, the Marble falls economy mainly thrived on tourism.
