More about Round Rock homes for rent

Founded in the early 1850s on the banks of Brushy Creek, Round Rock was named after a rock you can still see today. Historically, the rock served as a marker for a low-water crossing point, suitable for cattle being driven overland to the railway in Kansas.

During the first half of the 20th Century, Round Rock was primarily an agricultural town, surrounded by cotton fields. Gradually, as the city of Austin expanded, the town became popular with commuters looking for affordable real estate and attractive country surroundings to come home to each evening.

Starting in the early 1990s, major retailers and a number of large corporations moved into Round Rock. Among these was Dell, which currently employs roughly 16,000 people in the area. With rapid economic development, the town began losing its status as a sleepy "bedroom community."

Today Round Rock is a thriving community with a powerful local economy. It's known for its award-winning schools, attractive parks, and many spacious new homes.

An added advantage is that despite its growing popularity, Round Rock offers residents property tax and utility rates that are among the lowest in the region.
