Travel Tips for Round Rock

Sam Bass, Notorious Train Robber

by VeronicaG

According to accounts of his personality, Sam Bass committed train robberies more for amusement than anything else. He gave little thought to whether anyone would be injured 'physically or financially' from his antics. It's said that his 'legend is greater than his actual deeds'.

Sam Bass's good nature and money seemed to attract people to his gang. When he traveled throughout Texas, he explained his wealth as having been accumulated from prospecting in the Black Hills.

In order to commit some of his crimes, some think he most likely had to hide his gold...maybe somewhere in Texas! Perhaps it was in a cave in East Mountain at Mineral Wells or west of Prairie Dell near Big Blue Spring. In spite of the efforts of a few, no one has ever reported finding old Sam Bass's gold.

Eventually, the Bass Gang's amateurish crimes led to gunfights, which resulted in deaths. The final round-up was in Round Rock, when Sam was confronted for having more guns than was permitted in that town. This confrontation ended the life of Sam Bass.

He is sometimes referred to as "Texas' Beloved Bandit". For more on Sam's history, go to www.roundrocktexas.gov.
