2023 Round Rock Preservation Project
The Round Rock Old Stagecoach Inn is the Round Rock Preservation Project for 2023. The Inn was threatened with demolition due to the RM 620 Road Safety Project in the City of Round Rock in 2013.
The city funded the relocation of the Inn from Hotel Occupancy Taxes to save the Inn from demolition. The Inn was originally located at 901 Round Rock Avenue (Suite D) & was built circa 1848-1853. The City of Round Rock purchased the building in 2012 & relocated the Inn to 750 Chisholm Trail Road on Apr 27-29, 2018.
The City signed a resolution on April 13 2023, to hire a local construction contractor to complete the restoration of the RR Stagecoach Inn. The cost of the restoration is approximately $700,000.00. The contractor is expected to begin his work on the Inn in July 2023.
Round Rock Preservation was formed on April 5, 2016 to help save the Round Rock Stagecoach Inn from demolition & achieve other preservation projects in the future. Round Rock Preservation depends on memberships, sponsorships, & donations to accomplish preservation efforts within the City of Round Rock and to provide education to the public about historic preservation sites and structures within the City of Round Rock.
