Chisholm Trail Park


Round Rock was first established where the Chisholm Trail crossed Brushy Creek.  The low water crossing was marked with a round, table-shaped rock that gave the town its name.  Later the railroad was extended to a location 3/4 mile away, and commercial activity followed.  The area by the station then became known as New Town (now Downtown) and the original settlement as Town.

One of the nicest trails you'll enjoy while living at the Rock Springs Apartments in Round Rock.
