History

In 1851 a small town was established along the banks of the Brushy Creek. In 1854 it was given the name Round Rock in tribute to the large round rock situated in the creek which marked a low-water crossing area for wagons and cattle. After the Civil War ended, Jesse Chisholm included Brushy Creek as part of his cattle trail. The route became the well known Chisholm Trail. Downtown Round Rock was the scene of the notable gunfight and capture of the famous train robber Sam Bass.
