Petite Getaway: Warrentop and Round Top Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Warrenton is best known as the home of the smallest Catholic church in the world. St. Martin’s, on the left side of the road as you head north, is a simple white frame building. Inside the Lilliputian house of worship, plain wooden benches serve as pews before an ornate altar. Step inside for a look; visitors are welcome. St. Martin’s is a preview of another pint-sized attraction along this day trip: the smallest incorporated town in Texas. Round Top is also home to a world-class music facility. Festival Hill, located just outside of town, offers visiting symphony orchestras performances under the summer stars. “Downtown” Round Top consists of several blocks flanking the old courthouse.
Today the county seat is located in nearby La Grange, but the lawn of the Round Top courthouse is still faithfully maintained by the DYD (Do Your Duty) Women’s Club as it has been since the 1930s. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Austin. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
