The Round Rock Cemetery established in the early 1850s, in what is now known as Old Round Rock, and has contributed much to the history of the community as well as Williamson County and the State of Texas as a whole. Settlers, who moved in while Texas was still a Republic, helped develop this county.
On the roster of those buried here are the names of men and women who have made
a lasting contribution to the history of this area. There are between 2,000 and 3,000
people buried here, although hundreds of the graves are unmarked. Some of the
graves are distinguished by persons as far back as 1771, and many more by those
who may now seem forgotten, but were memorable personalities in the city's past.
Round Rock Cemetery is one of the more interesting cemeteries in the area for the
wide variety of stories that it can tell - Outlaws and lawmen, pioneers, slavery,
segregation, neglect, hardship.
