The City of Round Rock and the Round Rock Community Foundation partnered to commemorate Round Rock’s historical past and on Feb. 20, 2009, at 10 am in Round Rock’s Chisholm Trail Park, the Foundation will reveal and dedicate the newest statue in The Crossing.
When complete, approximately 20 larger than life statues, sculpted by Jim Thomas of Jonestown, will stand in Chisholm Trail Park as reminders of Round Rock’s cattle drive history. Statues of Hattie Cluck, her son Emmett Cluck, and two steers are already on display in the park. Future statues will include the rest of the Cluck family, cowboys, and additional steers to depict a full cattle crossing at the round rock for which the city is named. As the Chisholm Trail Park continues to expand, future park amenities will include a natural seating area, an educational kiosk area, riparian garden, and a waterfall and creek scene.
