Day Trippin’ Round Top

Boosted by the popularity of the Round Top Antiques Fair and Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines, this small but bustling slice of far southeastern Central Texas is well worth a “look-see-do.”

Located about 75 miles from downtown Austin, Round Top will treat you to the charm of yesteryear in this totally Texas city. While the census indicates this less than 100-residents strong city’s population may be dwindling I can assure you Round Top is a bustling hive making eyes and hearts wider than Texas itself!

“Game’s On” with this antique table. I spy some great locations for chips. And private dips.

One of the most touching early Texas churches rests in the heart of Round Top. Step inside Haw Creek Chapel for an authentic trip to yesteryear. (Hint: Make note the wavy glassed window panes and doorway!)

These glorious 18th century mirrors bring a nice smashup of Italy to Texas.

I hope you enjoyed these pictures!

If you’re planning a trip to Round Top make sure to give yourself a full day or more – we were there about 7 hours and likely saw only about 25% of everything Round Top has to offer. That’s a good problem to have as our return trip is already in the works!

  1. This spring was my third visit to Round Top Antiques weekend(weeks)…..one for reconnaissance, the last two as vendors in the Campbell Building in Warrenton. What a blast! I do not believe you can ever see it all but, I’ll keep trying. There is too much! Thanks for sharing.
