Established in 1858, Camanche is located in the central part of Comanche County, Texas. John Duncan offered the county 240 acres on Indian Creek as a site for a county seat. Its name came from the Comanche Native American Tribe. In 1945 a cheese plant, pecan, and peanut shelling plants, granaries, and wool and mohair concerns were the chief businesses. Industries produced camping trailers, air-conditioners, feeds, peanut products, and leather goods. The construction of the Procter Reservoir made possible a new water system. A tourist attraction in the area is the Comanche County Historical Museum. A park is located three miles south of Comanche at Lake Eanes.
