Round House

Round House, on State Highway 309 two miles south of Round Prairie in southeastern Navarro County, was probably established around 1900. In the mid-1930s it had two churches, a school, several businesses, and a number of house. After World War II many of the residents moved away, the businesses closed, and the school was consolidated with that of Kerens. By the mid-1960s Round House was no longer shown on highway maps. In the early 1990s a few widely scattered houses remained in the area. The population was forty in 2000.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
