Take a journey back in time with us. 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. Located near Chisholm Trail Street, Brushy Creek holds a piece of Round Rock’s rock-solid history.
