Established in 1858 but preceded by much earlier Spanish, Mexican and Anglo-American ranching activities, the town bills itself as the "Birthplace of the Cowboy," epitomized by a bronze statue in front of city hall. Hunters seek white-tailed deer (among largest in Texas) as well as dove and quail during fall-winter hunting seasons.
