Fowlerton in found in northeastern La Salle County. The Fowler Brothers Land Company founded and developed the town in the early twentieth century. The brothers convinced the railroad to include the modestly named town on their tracks. The brothers also built a cotton gin in anticipation of huge cotton crops. After 1917, a severe drought set the entire area behind and people started to move away. In 1986 one unnamed newspaper called Fowlerton a "near-ghost town." In 2000 the population was estimated to be 62. Fowlerton was served by the Cotulla Independent School District. However, most pupils transfer to McMullen County High School in Tilden, Texas.
