1844-1923

In 1881, when the International & Great Northern Railroads pushed through South Texas, rancher Joseph Cotulla offered part of his homestead in exchange for running the track through his property.
He platted a town site with a central plaza and a row of storefront businesses that drew cowboys and homesteaders for miles around. Though Cotulla's "wild west" reputation was well earned, those rough and ready days are largely a thing of the past.
What remains are Cotulla's historic storefront businesses, town plaza and civic buildings which together convey a strong sense of the frontier towns that helped tame the wilderness, a sense that most only see in the movies.
