Why Visit Haunted Round Rock, Texas?

Named quite literally after a big Round Rock, the small but booming town just north
of Austin has a vibrant nightlife and an active Ghostlife!

Located just 20 miles north of Austin, Round Rock has become more than a suburb,
it’s a booming full of big businesses and one of the world’s largest tech companies,
Dell Technologies. It is also the home of Texas State University’s newest campus,
Austin Community College, and the Round Rock Express – a minor baseball team.
Round Rock was originally called Brushy Creek when it was first settled in the 1850s
on the banks of, yes, you guessed it, Brushy Creek. But the US Postal Service asked for
a name change, so the OGs looked at that big round rock on the water and said,
“Round Rock it is!”

Folks moved away from the banks as the creek became unpredictable and set up
New Town, which is today’s Downtown Round Rock. And New Town holds much of
Round Rock’s history and ghosts.

Sam Bass, an American Old West outlaw, lost his life in a shootout in Downtown
Round Rock with the Texas Rangers in 1878. And on the bank stakeout that led to the
shootout, Deputy Sheriff Ahigah W. “Caige” Grimes was also shot and killed. Many
believe it is their ghosts that are seen skulking around the local bars and restaurants
and loitering on the downtown streets.
