Preservation promotes respect & understanding of our shared past.  Richard Moe, President of the National Trust said "Preservation is making opportunities for contact with our shared heritage; it's the glue that holds us together."
When it comes to getting to know one's city, there is nothing more educational than walking through our streets & experiencing living monuments to the city's past.
After WW II, our country wanted to renew itself with newer buildings.  It was out with the old and in with the new. The result was a huge loss of signifcant historic buildings across our nation and within our own city.  
The National Preservation Act of 1966 was created to slow/stop the loss of significant historic structures.  
Every generation defines what it considers historic in terms of what it deems as valuable from the past.  Demolition is the ultimate deadline & the utlimate failure of historic preservation.  Once a structure is demolished, that visual part of our history is lost forever.
Over the years Round Rock has lost too many irreplaceable historic structures. We are working to save the historic places that matter in Round Rock, Texas.

What makes a landmark?


"A building does not have to be an important work of architecture to become a first-rate landmark.  Landmarks are not created by architects.  They are fashioned by those who encounter them after they are built.  The essential feature of a landmark is not its design, but the place it holds in a city's memory.  Compared to the place it occupies in social history, a landmark's artistic qualities are incidental."

                           -Herbert Muschamp

The City of Round Rock approved the 2022 Budget in September 2021 and included in the budget a one-time allocation of $300,000.00 for Historic Preservation Projects and an annual budget of 3% of the Hotel Occupancy Taxes for the same purpose.  Round Rock Preservation will advocate that the first funds from the 2022 be used for the Restoration of the Round Rock Old Stagecoach Inn.  The engraved history bricks for a display near the Inn have been delivered to City of Round Rock Parks & Recreation Department.  The engraved history bricks are waiting to be installed as a part of the City's Heritage Trail West Project which is expected to be complete by March 2024.  A new contractor for the restoration phase of the Round Rock Stagecoach Inn Project was hired on April 13, 2023.  The SCI project  and the engraved brick project is expected to be complete in July 2024.  25 Apr 2024 RRP provided the City of Round Rock $53,000.00 to help fund restoration of windows, doors, floors, and roof at the RR Stagecoach Inn.
