Round Rock Prepares for a Heritage Celebration During National Preservation Month in MaySource: City of Round Rock

Round Rock is gearing up for a trip down memory lane with its upcoming National Preservation Month in May. Taking pride in its rich past, the city has a slate of activities planned to celebrate and reflect on the history that shapes the community.

Leading the charge, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has been the flag bearer of this initiative since 1973, thrusting local preservation and heritage tourism into the limelight. This year's focus on Round Rock’s "Old Town" is expected to draw history buffs and novices alike. According to an announcement on the Round Rock official website, the Williamson Museum is slated to host a Pioneer Day on May 4 at the Old Settlers Association, complete with exhibitions and historical reenactments.

For those who prefer a dash of education with their lunch, Pearson Ranch Middle School students will showcase their local knowledge. The youth are set to present Round Rock history projects at a Lunch and Learn event on May 14. It's an opportunity for the community to see the past through the eyes of its future, as students bring local lore and bygone tales to life.

Residents and visitors alike can keep tabs on the upcoming events and exhibits specific to Preservation Month by visiting Round Rock’s website. More announcements and detailed schedules are anticipated as May approaches, ensuring that anyone with a penchant for the past won't miss out on a chance to engage with the city's storied heritage.
