The Bartlett Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, stands as a cohesive group of early 1900s commercial buildings, and reflects the town's prosperity achieved during the early 20th century as a cotton shipping center in central Texas. Nearly 90 percent of the buildings in the district are historically significant. Many of the buildings are in fair condition and few have been significantly altered. The main street is remarkably intact and includes the core of the city’s past and present commercial activities. The City of Bartlett is split between two counties (Bell and Williamson), has an approximate population of 1600, and is known as "The best little town in Texas."

  • In Episode 2, downtown Bartlett is one of the Texas ghost towns visited to retrieve supplies. Like many of the towns in this post-apocalyptic world, this one is also abandoned with no soul in sight. Luckily, present-day Bartlett is alive and well and known to some as "The best little town in Texas."
