Protected by five surrounding hills and an abundant spring (from which the water was said to have a copper taste), the original town site became a stopping point as drivers brought their herds to the Chisholm Trail. The arrival of Camp Hood (now Fort Hood, the U.S. Army's largest post) in 1942 made it the largest city in Coryell County. The city also is home to Central Texas College.
Events include Rabbit Fest on the third weekend of May and the Krist Kindle Markt holiday bazaar on the first weekend in December.
The scenic area around the city is a mecca for bicyclists and runners, hosting races and tour events during the year. Cycling route maps are available from the visitor bureau.
