Menard

Established near the ruins of the ancient Spanish mission Santa Cruz de San Saba, which had been abandoned a century before, this town later served as a trading post and stop on cattle trails. The compound of an old Spanish mission just east of town served as a corral, holding up to 3,000 cattle on the way to market. A historical marker on F.M. 2092 recalls the history of the mission.
