Cedar Park wasn’t always such a ‘happening’ place, though. This city was founded by a handful of courageous – and determined – pioneers. They endured countless hardships and challenges to build the city we know as Cedar Park. The name “Cedar Park” was the third name for the area, first known as Running Brushy and then Brueggerhoff. It was bestowed upon the area by Emmett Cluck, the son of George Washington and Harriet (Hattie) Cluck. This appellation was announced in 1887. Though the times have changed, that pioneering spirit has been passed on to us through remnants of history.
