1892: Llano was incorporated, the Llano River was bridged, and the Austin and Northwestern Railroad opened a depot on the north side of the Llano River. This was also the year the courthouse burned.

1935: The Roy Inks Bridge was built after a flood swept away the 1892 bridge.

In the famous drought of the early 50s - the Llano River actually went dry on two separate occasions.
