Moran, Texas

As with many towns on the prairies, Moran was founded as a station when the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad built through Shackelford County in 1882. First named Hulltown after Swope Hull, its first merchant, it was renamed to Hicks in 1891, and to Moran, for John J. Moran, president of the railroad in 1892.

Moran is a trade center for farmers and ranchers.
