Established in 1891, this city is the seat of Foard County. In the mid-1800s, the area was the domain of Comanche people who figured in history's most famous case of a white girl captured and reared by Native Americans. The girl was Cynthia Ann Parker, taken by Comanches in 1836 and recaptured by white men in 1860. Recapture site, Pease River Battlefield, is marked by a historical marker and is nine miles northeast on F.M. 98. (For more on Cynthia Ann Parker story, see GROESBECK.)
Bed-and-breakfasts, hunter's facilities and RV hookups are available. Annual events include Cynthia Ann Parker Days in May and Cowboy Christmas Ball in December.
