Bybee Square at Round Top
Bybee Square Experience some of Round Top's history. Several of the shops and galleries are housed in historic homes. Lulu's restaurant is located in the original stone brewery and the former Von Rosenberg dry goods store building.
Faith Bybee was one of the forces behind Emma Lee Turney’s Original Round Top Antiques Fair. Bybee, along with Ima Hogg and Hazel Ledbetter, encouraged Turney to stage the first antiques show in October 1968. Bybee’s interest in the area’s arts, artifacts and buildings also prompted her and her husband to form the Texas Pioneer Arts Foundation, which until 2015, owned a block within Round Top’s city limits called Bybee Square.
In 2015, Bobby and Ann Rauch acquired Bybee Square from the Foundation, overseen by Barry Moore and Steve and Jacquelyn Ditsler. Though ownership has transferred, the block and its historic and period-appropriate buildings, such as the original brewery, and others that had been relocated by Bybee, continue to serve as a retail, dining and business center. The Rauches, like the Bybees before them, split their time between Houston and Round Top.
