About the Historic Round Rock Collection
The Historic Round Rock Collection is the product of the Historic Preservation Commission’s Historic Round Rock Project: an Ongoing History, funded in part with a Certified Local Government grant from the Texas Historical Commission. The Collection supplements existing historical accounts of Round Rock and provides a medium for residents to share stories, accounts, and photos, and in the process encourages their documentation.
