Doole is an unincorporated community in McCulloch County. It is the birth and death place of Dan Collins Taylor, a famous American cowboy, rodeo performer, and promoter. The town was originally known as Gansel when it was first settled by a farming and ranching community called Gansel, after the prominent Gansel Family, in 1908. A couple of years later, the residents decided to open up a post office and asked the advice of the Brady postmaster, David Doole, Jr. The name Gansel got rejected; hence, the settlers decided to name their post office and town after Doole. Farming and ranching remained to be the community’s economic mainstays, until a drought hit the town in the late 1950s. The area farmers and ranchers relocated, and a lot of the residents searched for new jobs in order to survive.
