The Jones brothers, Emmett and Warren first settled in the area in the late 1930s.  Around 1940 Warren constructed the first commercial structure in what is presently Jonestown. The community began as a haven for weekend boaters but more and more settlers built their permanent residences in the area and commuted to work in Austin. There are still a lot of fishing cabins available but new homes are being built on estate lots and gated properties with lake-front or lake views.  The city incorporated as a General Law City in 1985. It rapidly grew from an incorporated populace of 683 residents to 1,681 in the 2000 census and is estimated to have over 2000 residents at the moment.
