Elected as county seat of Wood County in 1850, Quitman is located in the west central part of the county. The name came from John A. Quitman, a governor of Mississippi and a prominent figure in the Mexican War. In 1872 as the Texas and Pacific Railway headed west across Texas, they wanted to have a depot there, but as was the custom, they demanded tribute. James Stephen Hogg, who later became Texas' first native-born governor, stood up to the railroad. In the mid-1950s an oil discovery helped boost the area. The opening of several nearby recreational lakes in the late 1950s led to additional growth and prosperity. Quitman is the hometown of actress Sissy Spacek.
