Travis Landing is a small neighborhood located along the southern shores of Lake Travis. Through many years this land on the winding Colorado River was the home of the *Comanche and other early native Americans. Completion of the Mansfield Dam in the 1940's created Lake Travis and Hudson Bend, named after Wiley Hudson, who built a ranch home in the area in the 1800's.
In 1943, Joe and Margaret Cocke purchased 56 acres which, in 1960, was subdivided as "Travis Landing." The Cocke Family established a lake residence in 1947. The Cocke Horse Farms held annual Hunter and Jumper shows from 1949 to 1951. Participants came from near and far to enjoy the shows as well as the beauty of Lake Travis.
