Tolar is a city in Hood County and is part of the Granbury, Texas Micropolitan Statistical Area. It is located on US 377, southwest of the county. Tolar was first settled in 1890, when a rail line was extended through the area. It was named after Alf Tolar, a friend of McGaughey, who somehow had naming rights. A post office was inaugurated within that year, and the city soon became a trade center for area ranchers and farmers. The collection and shipment of petrified wood also became one of the city’s economic activities; several buildings in the area are made of this material. The Great Depression, WWII, and the development of nearby Fort Worth greatly contributed to the reduction of its residents. As of 2010, it has a population of 681.
