BRUSHY CREEK, TX (WILLIAMSON COUNTY)
BRUSHY CREEK, TEXAS (Williamson County). Brushy Creek is a community located off Farm Road 620 just west of Round Rock in southern Williamson County. This residential development, named for the nearby creek, began by the mid-1970s on acreage that had previously served ranches and lime quarries. By the late 1970s the Brushy Creek Municipal Utility District had been created, and the building boom of the early 1980s spurred on growth in the area. In 1990 the population was 5,833. That figure increased to 15,371 by 2000. Brushy Creek, part of the Round Rock Independent School District, has several schools, and the community is served by several churches. Businesses along Farm Road 620 serve the area. Many residents commute to nearby Austin.
