When I lived in Austin in the 1950s, Round Rock was a small town 20 or
30 miles north of Austin noted primarily as the place where Sam Bass,
notorious robber of stagecoaches, trains and banks, engaged in a gun
battle with Texas Rangers, in which Bass was wounded. The next
morning he was found lying helpless in a pasture north of town and was
brought back town where he died two days later on his 27th birthday.

The last time I was through Round Rock a few years ago it was office
and research buildings and laboratories; development was continuous
between Austin and Round Rock.
