Brackettville

The city (seat of Kinney County) was established in 1852 as a supply village for adjacent Fort Clark--one of the most storied military posts in Southwest. Many infantry regiments and most of the Army's cavalry units saw duty at Fort Clark. Deactivated in 1944, the property is now a resort development. The town became a trade center for surrounding ranches and irrigated farms.
