Created Aug. 27, 1856. One of 128 counties formed from Bexar County that extended from the Rio Grande to the Panhandle, and as far west as El Paso. Named for Texas hero, Ben McCulloch, who fought in Texas Revolution, Indian, Mexican and Civil Wars.

Indian and frontier hazards made growth slow and 20 years passed before buffalo were hunted off and ranches established.

Organized Aug. 4, 1876 with Brady, county seat. Became ranch, farm, recreation center.

Geographical center of Texas. Site of 1831 Calf Creek battle, where James Bowie, Alamo hero, and party defeated 100 Indians.
