I have lived in Caldwell for twenty three years and in that amount of time I can't say that there's been anything terrible to happen or anything overly exciting to happen. It's a basic small town full of small town gossip and small town views. As with most small towns it has its own issues but it has some positives as well. Every Fall we have the Kolache Festival and from my understanding people come from MILES around EVERY YEAR to attend it. We also host the Burleson County Fair each year in September. So there is that too. Enjoy!

Caldwell is an average small town. Most people drive through it to get to other larger towns/cities like Bastrop, Rockdale, Dallas, etc. The food is pretty good, but the gas prices are a bit pricey. The public schools are okay, but there is a nice private school (First Baptist) there that I attended. Caldwell has a public pool and a nice, large park equipped with some baseball and soccer fields as well as a basketball court.
Caldwell is a small town so everyone is willing to able to lend a hand whenever needed. There is plenty of community support for school organizations. There are also community activities like our Kolache Festival and Christmas on the square. I would like to see more places for employment open up, especially restaurants. Caldwell is full of small, family-run businesses, but it might be better for the community if we bring in more chain restaurants.
