Quitaque (KIT-a-KWAY) was first settled by Comanchero trader Jose Piedad Tayfoya, who operated a trading post on the site from 1865–67. In 1877, George Baker drove a herd of about 2,000 cattle to the area, where he headquartered the Lazy F Ranch. Charles Goodnight bought the Lazy F in 1880 and introduced the name Quitaque.
