The town's history can be traced back to the early 1500s, when Spanish explorers established missions in the area. In 1860, Chief Peta Nocona and his Comanche warriors waged a fierce three-day battle against a group of Texas Rangers led by Capt. Sul Ross along the Pease River. This town, founded in the area in 1887 and incorporated in 1891, was named for Nocona. Today, the city is known for producing quality leather goods, from signature cowboy boots to baseball and softball gloves. Revitalization efforts are seen in its growing downtown and rodeo facilities. The city also has two parks and two 18-hole golf courses.
