City successfully relocates historic Stagecoach Inn

Oldest structure in Round Rock moved to future park site on Chisholm Trail

The oldest structure in Round Rock has a new home.

Slowly but surely, the Stagecoach Inn was moved over the weekend of April 27-29 to its new perch on Brushy Creek along Chisholm Trail. Since 1848, it sat at what is now 901 RM 620, a location that sits in the path of the realignment of RM 620.

Chisholm Trail between Emanuel Street and RM 620 remains closed to through traffic through Monday evening. Crews will be removing a bridge deck they built over the low water crossing at Brushy Creek to provide additional support as the 100-ton limestone structure was moved to its final location.

Phoenix I Restoration and Construction was chosen as the contractor for the Stagecoach Inn project and specializes in the restoration of historic structures, including the Navarro and Fort Bend County courthouses, and the Texas State Capitol. Subcontractor H. D. Snow and Son is the subcontractor moving the structure. The project includes stabilizing the structure, relocating the building and repairing the stonework.

Once the Inn is relocated, non-profit Round Rock Preservation has plans to restore the building using private donations raised through the group’s website, rrpreservation.org.
