"Volente is on Lake Travis and Farm Road 2769, eighteen miles northwest of Austin in northwestern Travis County... A post office was established at Volente in 1886 with Andrew J. Stanford as postmaster... The area was partially submerged by Lake Travis in the 1930s, and residents had to relocate on higher ground. In the 1940s and early 1950s the community was called Dodd City, for a local realtor and restaurant owner, but later in the 1950s the name was changed back to Volente."
