Cuero is a city in and the county seat of DeWitt County. On one note, it was named after Cuero Greek, which the Spanish had called Arroyo del Cuero or Creek of the Rawhide, in relevance to the Indian’s practice of killing wild cattle that got stuck in the mud of the creekbed. On another note, the city was named for the Spanish word “Cuero,” which means leather or hide. The town was officially founded in 1873, the same year that the tracks of the Gulf, Western Texas and Pacific Railway were completed. Two years later, the town was incorporated and it replaced Clinton as the county seat in 1876. By the mid-1890s, Cuero had one of the state’s largest cottonseed oil mills, three large cotton gins, an ice factory, two bottling plants, a cigar factory, a tannery, a private electric company, and the first of three hospitals. By 1906, the city was already shipping processed turkey birds nationwide, although the renowned “Turkey Trot” parade did not start until 1912.
