The Central Texas I-35 corridor, stretching from Waco to San Antonio, is a mecca of dynamic growth that continues to attract businesses from around the world. While Austin and San Antonio are the largest cities in this region, there are a number of smaller and robust communities in the outlying areas. One of those cities is Round Rock.
As one of the fastest growing cities in Texas and the nation, Round Rock is fast becoming a major center of economic development. Known throughout the United States for its quality of life, Round Rock has been recognized for its parks system, award winning master plan and exceptional public schools. Just a few years ago, Round Rock was selected as one of the best communities for young people. This award was presented by The Alliance of Youth to honor communities for their commitment to safe and caring environments for youth. In fact, Round Rock has been ranked as the safest city in Texas for two consecutive years and is ranked as the 13th safest city in the nation, according to a national survey of crime statistics.
Round Rock is the home base for Dell Computers and is a major retail hub, which includes the sprawling Premium Outlet Mall complex.
In addition to a strong business climate, entertainment and sports opportunities abound. For example, Round Rock is home to the number one minor league ballpark in the nation, Dell Diamond. The ballpark is the serves as the base for the Round Rock Express, the Triple A affiliate of the Houston Astros.
The history of Round Rock can be traced back to 1854, when the settlement was called Brushy Creek. Comanche and Lipan Apaches, along with later Chisholm Trail cattle drives and settlers, would look for the large round rock in Brushy Creek, which signaled a shallow water crossing. Following the Civil War, the area began to grow and the settlement name was changed to Round Rock. This large, round rock can still be seen in middle of Brush Creek.
