Where is Dewitt County, Texas?

  • DeWitt County is on the Gulf Coast Plain in southeastern Texas about forty-five miles inland from Copano Bay. It is bounded by Victoria, Goliad, Karnes, Gonzales, and Lavaca counties. Cuero, the county's largest town, serves as the county seat. The center point is at 29°05' north latitude and 97°23' west longitude. Although the present county was part of DeWitt's colony and settlement dates to colonization in 1825, the county officially has two dates of origin. Small areas in the northern part of the county are drained by the Lavaca River, and a small area in the southern part by the San Antonio River.

  • It comprises 910 square miles, most of which is nearly level to sloping; the areas of greatest elevation are mostly in the northwest. The elevation ranges from about 150 feet above sea level in the east corner to more than 540 feet above sea level in the southwest. The eastern corner and an area along the Gonzales county line falls in the Post Oak Savannah belt, characterized by tall grasses and, along streams, oak, elm, and pecan trees. Most of the county is part of the South Texas Plains, surfaced primarily by dark calcareous clays and sandy and clay loams that support tall grasses, small trees, shrubs, and crops.

Try your hand at cowboy skills like roping and keepin’ your mind in the middle on a saddle, and get up close to an authentic chuck wagon. After you learn all about longhorns, the great cattle drive era, and the American cowboy, be sure to shop at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum’s gift shop for the perfect Western souvenir.
