Named for the Comanche tribe, this community was established as a trade center for surrounding ranches in 1858. Rich in pioneer and Texas history, there are more than 65 historic landmarks in the county. Two Comanche County icons—the "Fleming Oak" and "Old Cora"—sit on the southwest corner of town square.
Today, it is the seat of Comanche County and is a center of agricultural production. Antique shops, restaurants, local artisans and more can be found here. Camping, fishing, golf and water recreation are available at Lake Proctor. Hunters find deer, quail, dove and wild turkey.
A historic walking tour features courthouse square and historic business district. A brochure and maps are available at the restored Comanche Depot and a visitor kiosk downtown.
