Tilden is a Census-designated place in and the county seat of McMullen County. It was one of the first two communities in the county; it was founded in 1858 when thirty people assembled together to look for something to name their town. Since the assembly was on the Frio River, they named it Rio Frio. The area became the home-guard post for the Confederate Militia and it was once known as Dog Town in reference to the mass execution of dogs done by drunken cowboys. When the county was formally organized and Dog Town was elected as the county seat, the townsite was officially surveyed and renamed Tilden, after Samuel Tilden, a presidential candidate who didn’t succeed in the election of 1876. The population gradually grow since the production of oil in the area; in 1939, it had 500 residents. As of 2000, it has a population of 450.
