The county of McMullen, located west of the Texas state, was organized in 1877. It was named after John McMullen, an Irish empresario who founded a colony in Texas. The county primarily depended on large-scale sheep ranching, including the production of wool, along with the ranching of cattle, horses, mules, hogs, and swine industries; it doesn’t have manufacturing businesses. Oil and gas industries were later added, and these have significantly contributed to the county’s economy. McMullen County is also home to the Choke Canyon Reservoir where you can fish largemouth basses and catfishes, or just simply explore the wildlife and the beautiful scenery that it provides. Moreover, American, Mexican, and Italian cuisines are all being served in this county.
