Historic sites in the Chisholm Trail area
Round Rock was first established where the Chisholm Trail crossed Brushy Creek.  The low water crossing was marked with a round, table-shaped rock that gave the town its name.  Later the railroad was extended to a location 3/4 mile away, and commercial activity followed.  The area by the station then became known as New Town (now Downtown) and the original settlement as Old TownClick image to open a larger map.
