The county of Montague, located in the north-central region of the Texas state, was established in 1857 and organized in 1858. It was named after Daniel Montague, a warrior who served in the Mexican-American War. This county has been largely dependent on farming, ranching, oil production, and manufacturing industries; beef, hay, wheat, pecans, melons, and dairy products were the major agricultural products. It also features historical sites and landmarks from the Tales N’ Trails Museum to the Forester Ranch. Two festivals are being celebrated in this county every May: Fun Day festival in Nocona and the Pioneer Festival in Saint Jo. Furthermore, barbecue smokehouses, steakhouses, seafood houses, diners, burrito shops, pizzeria, Mexican and Southwestern restaurants serve this county.
