New options being considered for relocating Stagecoach Inn

The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) received an update from staff and held a public hearing regarding the status of the Old Stagecoach Inn at its regular meeting Tuesday, April 19.

At its March 15 meeting, the Commission voted 4-1 to deny a Certificate of Appropriateness for the demolition of the Old Stagecoach Inn, 901 Round Rock Ave. The historic structure sits in the path of planned improvements to RM 620 west of IH-35. The denial imposed a 120-day waiting period, allowing time to find alternatives to demolition. After the 120 days have passed, a demolition permit may be issued.

At the April 19 meeting, Transportation Services Director Gary Hudder said the City is evaluating the potential to relocate the original structure approximately 30 yards southwest of where it currently sits. That would keep it in the historic Chisholm Trail area.

Here are some of the images shared by Hudder at the meeting.

Hudder said the City is seeking cost and feasibility estimates to move the original structure intact, as well as stone by stone.

Commission Chair Jerry Hodges requested another project update at the Commissions regularly scheduled meeting on May 17.

Updates will be posted on roundrocktexas.gov/stagecoach-inn as available. Please direct comments and suggestions to historic@roundrocktexas.gov. The Historic Round Rock Collection and the Williamson County Historical Commission have posted information about the building and its history.
