So, how did Round Rock get its name? 

In 1851 a small community was formed on the banks of Brushy Creek, near a large round rock located in the middle of the creek. This round rock marked a convenient low-water crossing for wagons, horses and cattle. The "round rock" is located near Chisholm Trail Street in the middle of Brushy Creek. The town was first named Brushy Creek then renamed Round Rock in 1854. Please click the image (this image and the one above provided Larry D. Moore) to see a larger view.
