The bypass of the 183A toll road also runs through the Cedar Park and was opened to traffic on 15 March 2007. The Austin and Northwestern Railroad, which connected the state capital with the northern cities of Burnet and Lampasas, was completed in 1882 and ran through the Running Brushy and Cluck Ranches. In 1883, the Austin & Northwestern Railway completed the first section of its Austin-San Antonio line, crossing the land of the clucks at Running Brushy.
The following spring, the Cluck family returned to Williamson County and settled in Running Brushy, which later became known as Cedar Park, where Hattie served as a postmaster. The following year, they moved to Spicewood Springs with their son William and his wife Mary in 1882.
In addition to the community, the city of Cedar Park, Texas, also formed a government consisting of a mayor and a city councilman. In 1994, the Y adopted a city structure and also took responsibility for paving the way for the expansion of the 50-hectare Twin Lakes Park for the programming of day camps. They opened the CVJM there in 1997, which would later become Twin Peaks Family, and expanded the program to include Taylor in 1998.
Over the years, there were some name changes, and in 1887 the city was finally renamed Cedar Park. The locals hated the name, so George and Harriet Emmett Cluck's sons changed it to "Cedar Park" and their sons George, Harriet and Emmett, Clucks, changed it to the town of Cedar Park in 1886.
Other families came and began to populate the area with houses, and the beginning of today's Cedar Park was born. At the insistence of the residences, Cluck's changed its name to "Cedar Park" and opened a one-hectare hiking park directly opposite the station.
In the decades that followed, Cedar Park became a regular community as new settlers from the north continued to flock to the area to seek affordable housing and commute to Austin for good jobs. By the end of the 19th century, it had become one of the largest suburbs in the Austin area, which was incorporated as Austin tried to annex neighboring communities and continued to grow along its way. But as the subdivision of houses began to build and the growth of nearby Austin accelerated, "Cedar Park" changed again.
The Cedar Park Log Housing Schools were merged to form the new Whitestone School of 1923, originally located on the site of the old Cedar Park School District building at the corner of West Sixth Street and West Fourth Street.
