The name Round Top reportedly comes from "the house with the round top", a stop on an early stagecoach route. The first to settle the area in the early 19th century were Anglo-Americans, and eventually German immigrants joined them. Visit Henkle Square for a glimpse of 19th century Anglo- and German-American life. Today Round Top is a popular destination for travelers in part because it cherishes its history and heritage, something your Round Top Texas Bed and Breakfast innkeepers will no doubt tell you.
An interesting place to visit while in town is the Burton Cotton Gin Museum, a 9-acre complex that features a 1933 Cobblers Shop and a 1914 Farmers Cotton Gin, which may be the last cotton gin of its vintage that can still gin and bale cotton. Another good spot for history buffs is Monument Hill, the burial site for the Texans who died in the Dawson Massacre and the men of the Mier Expedition who drew the "Black-beans-of-death". Look around your Round Top TX Bed and Breakfast for books about the history of the area.
