Cinna’ Roll Run – Route Description

map_my_route_17One of Austin’s oldest neighborhoods, Bouldin Creek dates to the turn of the century, with several historic homes dating to that era still standing. Bouldin Creek was home to one of Austin’s most famous voices, the late speaker, writer, and first amendment rights activist John Henry Faulk, whose boyhood residence, the landmark 1894 Victorian mansion of Dr. E.W. Herndon, is now occupied by Green Pastures Restaurant. Other neighborhood notables include Negro League baseball great Willy Wells and UT Tower gunman Charles Whitman.
