ROUND HOUSE, TX
ROUND HOUSE, TEXAS. Round House, on State Highway 309 two miles south of Round Prairie in southeastern Navarro County, was probably established around 1900. In the mid-1930s it had two churches, a school, several businesses, and a number of house. After World War II many of the residents moved away, the businesses closed, and the school was consolidated with that of Kerens. By the mid-1960s Round House was no longer shown on highway maps. In the early 1990s a few widely scattered houses remained in the area. The population was forty in 2000.
