Stroll and shop: There are antiques and collectibles  at friendly, one-of-a-kind shops such as Flown the Coop, The Nesting Co., Antiques @ the Mill and Heritage Hall and more. The welcome mat is out. Find out why Burton is the #secrettown.

No boll weevils allowed: The Texas Cotton Gin Museum is a must-see. It earns rave reviews from visitors and celebrates the history of an important crop that helped power the region’s economy.

Honey do: Lazy Bee Honey Co. doesn’t have a storefront, but you can find their all-natural, raw honey and gourmet honey jams in many stores in the Roundtopolis. Buzz on over and select your nectar.

Where there’s smoke there’s: The Burton Volunteer Fire Department. Not only does this essential organization provide fire protection within the area, the members are good cooks. Check their Facebook page to find out about fundraisers—and get some great barbecue.


Almost everyone has a things to do list. While grocery shopping and picking up the laundry are undeniably necessary, they’re not nearly as fun as exploring the Roundtopolis. While the Round Top Antiques Shows are larger than life, they’re just the beginning of the discoveries waiting to be made in the region.

Use our suggestions to get going on your own personal adventure. Check out our ideas for Brenham, Carmine, Fayetteville, Giddings, La Grange, and Round Top.
