HISTORY: Handbook of Texas Online: "The town was established in 1882, when the community of San Gabriel in Williamson County was moved two miles northwest to the newly constructed Austin and Northwestern Railroad. Downtown Bertram, circa 1930The new community was named for Austin merchant Rudolph Bertram, the largest stockholder in the Austin and Northwestern. A post office opened in 1882, and by 1891 the town had an estimated population of 150, a cotton gin-gristmill, three general stores, a grocer, a blacksmith, a shoemaker, and two wagonmakers. After 1900 Bertram was a shipping point for cotton, cattle, and wool. In 1928 a record 11,624 bales of cotton were ginned in the town. In the early 1930s plummeting cotton prices and the Great Depression caused the town's population to decline from a high of 1,000 in 1929 to 550 by 1931. It was 600 in 1949 and by 1966 stood at 1,205. In 1989 the town had a population of 1,002 and nineteen businesses. At that time Bertram's principal industries included the manufacture of ceramic floor tiles, paving tiles, marble fixtures, and vacuum-formed and molded plastic products. In 1990 the population was 849."

Bertram's Red Brick School HouseBertram's Red Brick School House: From the City Web site: "The first school, built in 1882, was a 30'x 40' plank building and stood at the corner of East Street and San Gabriel Road. Mr. Rudolph Bertram contributed $50 toward its construction. It also served as a church and Masonic Lodge. This school was soon enlarged, but by 1908 it was outgrown. In 1909 the school district purchased 5.5 acres from T. D. Vaughn for $1,100 and built the red brick two story building still in use today and known as Bertram Elementary. It was completed at a cost of $16,000 which was $11,000 over budget. The new building was the pride of the community at the time, and it was known as a college because of the advanced curriculum and superior instruction. There were 11 grades. In 1970 the district consolidated with the Burnet district, and BCISD proposed the destruction of the old building. However, citizens of Bertram successfully intervened, and it was completely renovated. Now the stately old historical school house is again the pride of Bertram. Much of the school has been renovated in the last few years; there is a new "state of the art" Cafetorium with a covered pavilion, and much of the red brick school house has been renovated along with the gymnasium." The school celebrated it's 100 birthday in 2009.
