Round Rock of Round Rock
This photo is a picture of the Round Rock located along Brushy Creek east of Chisholm Trail Drive.
Before the railroad came to Round Rock, the only way to travel was by foot, horse, stagecoach, or wagon. Stagecoaches, travelers & cattle drives crossed Brushy Creek using the Round Rock as a guide for a low-water crossing & stopped to rest, eat and change out horses at the Round Rock Stagecoach Inn. The inn has had a connection to transportation & commerce from its very start until today.
