Downtown Placards

Historic building information placards

About the placards

13.14_placard-114_webNew historic building information placards have been installed on the 24 buildings in downtown’s Commercial Historic District.  The placards describe each building’s architecture, history, and some of the businesses that have occupied them.  Take a look at them next time you’re downtown, and see some of the stories behind Round Rock’s downtown.

The placards were funded in part with a Certified Local Government grant from the Texas Historical Commission, and frames were donated by the Faulk family.  For more information on the program, contact Joelle Jordan in the Planning & Development Services Department at 512-218-5428.
