Weatherford, Texas

Weatherford originated in the 1850s when it was selected as seat of Parker County, and named after Jefferson Weatherford, a member of the Texas Senate when the county was created. In its early years, Weatherford was the last settlement on the Western frontier, on a route of wagon trains operating between Fort Worth and Fort Belknap. The southwest area of town boasts many Victorian-style residences built in late 1800s. Industries include oil field equipment and silicone and plastic products. Weatherford Junior College, established in 1869, is the oldest continuing two-year college in the Southwest.

Stop by the chamber of commerce in the old Santa Fe Depot to receive a map for driving and walking tours around the city.
