Developed on the George P. Cleveland ranch, Valera is located in west-central Coleman County. The name was given by Santa Fe officials in 1886. Its railroad location secured modest prosperity. After World War II, Valera reached its peak. Valera is considered as a Texas ghost town. Currently, the only building remaining in the area is a post office and a BBQ restaurant on the SW corner of the Intersection. In 1946 Valera has a school, churches, 17 businesses, and 500 people. After that, the community declined. From 1980 to 2000 Valera had a population of only 80.
