CHISHOLM COLLECTION 
If read out of context, the Historic Round Rock Collection sounds like a historically significant collection of rocks. It’s not, although one rock in particular, a large table-shaped rock along a Brushy Creek low water crossing, provided the town its name. Rather, it is a collection of historic sites commemorating Round Rock’s history, including those sites connected to the Chisholm Trail. The famous trail crossed Brushy Creek near the infamous round rock and some of the town’s period businesses serviced the wranglers and drovers who followed the trail. Approximately nine sites, including several homes, an inn, a hotel that also served as a post office, and the actual round rock, of course, are among the collection. Round Rock is fortunate to retain a good percentage of its early architecture and much of the historic downtown buildings were constructed between 1876 and 1881. Chisholm Trail associated buildings, including the St Charles Hotel, were built as early as 1850 and remain standing today.
