Though small and primarily agricultural for much of its history, Wood County in East Texas has been “home sweet home” to many well-known personalities, including former Quitman High School homecoming queen and Coal Miner’s Daughter star Sissy Spacek, former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, Lillian Richard (the woman who inspired Quaker Oats to create Aunt Jemima), and several country music performers and songwriters. The peaceful Caddo tribe inhabited the area before white settlers established the county in 1850. Railroads built in the 1870s made coal mining the dominant industry, and the towns of Mineola, Winnsboro, Quitman, and Hawkins were founded and continued to grow. The county’s many lakes, historic sites, festivals, and musical events draw thousands of visitors every year.
