Regarding Hutto. Hutto is somewhat famous for the high school mascot, the Hippo. There are hippos (not real of course) all over the place in Hutto – in peoples back yards and in front of businesses.
The Hutto School adopted the hippopotamus as its mascot as early as 1923, when it first appeared on the Hutto High School official graduation announcements. Hutto is the only school district and the only community in the United States to have the hippo as its primary identifier.
