La-Grange is a city located near the Colorado River in southeast Texas. It's about halfway between Houston and Austin. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,923. LaGrange is a small town but big on attractions. It has a historic main town square filled with shops and restaurants, as well as a famous quilt museum and beautiful city parks. In the 1800s, LaGrange was the site of a large German and Czech settlement and their influence on the town is still felt today. It can be seen in the local architecture and many local customs, as well. The Germans and Czech selected this area because of its' natural beauty of rolling hills and forests, which reminded them of their homelands. La Grange is nestled along the Colorado River and features history, beauty, festivals, museums, concerts, antiques, air shows, feasts, and an annual county country fair. There is also a 9-hole disc golf course located at the Fayette County Fairgrounds. The course ranges in holes from 300 foot to 495 foot in distance - totaling a 3,390 foot, par 34 challenge. LaGrange is also known for being home to the Chicken Ranch, a well-known brothel that was closed in 1973, largely due to the efforts of Houston television report, Marvin Zindler. The town also drew attention when the band ZZ Top released its' classic rock song "La Grange."
