Leander is roughly 22 miles northwest of Austin, near the intersection of Ranch to Market Road 2243 and US Route 183. Georgetown is located 5 miles east on Route 2243.

Prior to Anglo colonization, the region now known as Leander was home to many Native American nations, notably the Tonkawa and Lipan Apache Nations, with the Comanche Nation subsequently coming in. The territory was then ruled by the Spanish and then by Mexico, however Native Americans retained sovereignty. Several settler families arrived in the 1840s, and Tumlinson Fort was built for their security near the Blockhouse Creek community.
Leander was founded in 1882 on property offered to potential residents by the Austin and Northwestern Railroad Co. The town was named after Leander “Catfish” Brown, one of the railroad executives responsible for the line’s construction.
Tumlinson Fort, Williamson County’s earliest European settlement, was constructed in early January 1836 at the headwaters of Brushy Creek, 4 miles south of present-day Leander. A company of Texas Rangers manned the post to protect European settlers from Comanche Indian incursions until late February, when the invasion of Santa Anna forced the station to be abandoned, and it was shortly torched by the Comanche.
In August 1839, near present-day Leander, a group of roughly 30 settlers going westward through the region were assaulted by Comanche Indians, and all but three were slain.
The Leanderthal Lady, a skeleton dating back 10,000 to 13,000 years, was discovered in Leander; the site was one of the earliest intact graves uncovered in the United States.
Devastating flames raged through two central Leander neighborhoods in August and September 2011, destroying 26 houses and scorching 330 acres (130 hectares).
