The county of Throckmorton, located in the north-central region of the Texas state, was established in 1858 and organized in 1879. It was named after William Throckmorton, a pioneer settler in Collin County. This county has been economically dependent on its oil, farming, ranching, and hunting industries; beef cattle, horses, hay, and wheat were its primary agricultural products. Throckmorton County is also known as a good hunting and fishing area, and it also features some interesting historical and recreational sites from the Old Jail Museum and Camp Cooper to the Millers Creek Reservoir. A wild game dinner is celebrated here every January. And although this county is one of the six dry counties in Texas, you can find a wide variety of food from local to international specialties in this county.
