Gustine is a town in Comanche County. The town was originally known as Cora, which became the county seat in the 1850s. In spite of, Gustine was founded in 1873. In the 1880s, the residents of Evergreen, the first settlement northeast of Gustine, moved to town so that they could be near the new road.

A rail line was built in 1910, allowing the town to experience an economic boom until the rail line was ceased in the 1930s. In the 1980s, Gustine became an agricultural community; cattle, goats, hogs, grain, peanuts, pecans, and fruits were the town’s economic mainstays. Gustine was the hometown of Jim Reese, a Republican politician who served as the mayor of Odessa. As of 2010, its population was 476.
