Round Rock and Williamson County have been inhabited since at least 9200 BC. Evidence of this can be found at the Gault site, halfway between Georgetown and Fort Cavazos. Here, ancient bone remains were discovered by Texas Department of Transportation workers while drilling core samples for a new highway.
Carbon samples date from this particular Pleistocene period some 10,500 years ago. Open occupation camps from the prehistoric and archaic period are also found throughout the county along streams and other water sources. The first known Native American historic occupants were the Tonkawa people who were hunters and flint workers who followed the buffalo on foot and periodically burned down the prairie to help them in their hunts. During the 18th century, they made the transition to an equestrian culture and used firearms to a limited extent. A small number of Kiowa, Yojuane, Tawakoni, and Mayeye Native Americans also lived in the county at the time of the first Anglo-Saxon settlements.
After being displaced by white settlements, the Comanches raided the county's settlements until the 1860s. By the end of the 19th century, Native Americans were being driven out of Central Texas. As the area became a rural Anglo-Saxon community, some of the modern paved roads followed the original Native American roads. One famous immigration route passed through Round Rock and is called the Double File Trail because it was wide enough for two riders to travel side by side. An elementary school in the Round Rock school district is named after this trail.
