When people think of Lockhart today, they think of barbecue. However, Lockhart’s history and culture are much more. As Spanish land grants were awarded to Anglos to settle this virtually uninhabited territory, they came to what is now Lockhart because of the many springs, live oaks, rolling hills, and good soil. First were Native Americans, like the friendly Tonkawa tribe, and then in 1840, a few Anglo families settled on Plum Creek, six miles from today’s town center. In August 1840, the legendary Battle of Plum Creek ended the Great Comanche Raid, clearing the way for further settlement. Farming and ranching led to a melting pot of ethnic entrepreneurs who opened related businesses around the square of the Caldwell County seat. Cattle and cotton became kings and, even today, remain leading agribusinesses. Dubbed the “Barbecue Capital of Texas” by the Texas Legislature, Lockhart can boast that over 1.2 million people visit annually to eat barbecue.

Author Ronda Anton Reagan, daughter of hometown couple Herman W. Anton and Ona Lea McGee Anton, is a seventh-generation Caldwell County resident. Passionate for historical preservation, local history, and genealogy, she collected more than 180 images in this book from neighbors, friends, the Caldwell County Museum, the Eugene Clark Library, and her mother. This retrospective history will guide the reader through the first 100-plus years of Lockhart.
