Moulton was established in the 1850s at the headwaters of the Lavaca River in Lavaca County. In 1887, the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad built north to Waco, within two miles of the community. A railroad station was constructed and named Topeka. However, realizing the economic potential of the rail connection, the old community gradually drifted over to the new station, which inherited the name, post office and business of Old Moulton. The city's Czech-German heritage is still evident.
Quaint storefronts are reminiscent of the late 1800s, complete with porches and benches. Several historical markers are found in the city, as well as the original Old Moulton town site. Bed-and-breakfast accommodations are available.
The Annual Moulton Town and Country Jamboree is held the last full weekend in July, with the famous fried-chicken dinner Sunday.
