Round Top, Texas

Chartered in 1870, Round Top is one of the smallest incorporated cities in Texas, established in 1835 as the Jones Post Office. Round Top is said to have received its name from "the house with the round top," and early stagecoach stand. In 1854 Round Top Academy was founded; advertised tuition for the five-month session was $10, with board, laundry, fuel and lights to cost an additional $12 to $15 per semester. The school closed in 1861.

Round Top was voted one of the Top 100 Samm Art Towns in America and host to the "longest continuously celebrated Fourth of July west of the Mississippi." The city is located on Texas Independence Trail and in the Texas Settlement Region, just south of the Presidential Corridor.
