Round Top

Trip Planner USA  /  Texas  /  Round Top
Round Top is a town in Fayette County, Texas, United States. The population was 80 at the 2010 census.HistoryAs a part of the Stephen F. Austin colony, James Winn acquired 4428acre in 1831; the present townsite was included in this tract. Named after early settlers, specifically Nathaniel Townsend (whose original house still exists as the Texana Lodge) the town was known as Townsend; later it was renamed Round Top, since the postmaster lived in a house with a round tower. Portions of Nassau Plantation were purchased by the Adelsverein, and settlement by German immigrants began 1845 to 1847; these settlers began buying up the local farms and the town lots.Joel Walter Robison, a fighter in the Texas Revolution and a later member of the Texas House of Representatives from Fayette County, was originally buried at the Florida Chapel Cemetery near Round Top but was re-interred in 1932 in the Texas State Cemetery in Austin.The Bethlehem Lutheran Church is the oldest active Lutheran church in Fayette County. Round Top is the smallest incorporated town in Texas with a full service public library, the Round Top Family Library; and the smallest incorporated town in Texas with a Local Historic District, Land Use and Architectural controls.
