The Sixth Legislature formed
McCulloch County from the Bexar District in 1856 and
named it in honor of Benjamin McCulloch. In the late
1850s a few families came to the Lost Creek area and to
the sites of present Milburn and Camp San Saba, but the
population remained too small for permanent organization
of the county. In 1860 McCulloch County was attached to
San Saba County for judicial purposes. Some officials
were elected for McCulloch County in the 1860s, and
evidence suggests that the Voca and Lost Creek
communities were the center of county affairs during
these years, but it was not until 1876 that all of the
county offices were filled and a county seat was chosen.
McCulloch County was not organized in time to have a
representative at the secession convention of 1861, and
its involvement in the Civil War was limited. Indians,
not Yankees, presented the more immediate threat to
people who had settled there by the 1860s. Confederate
volunteers from McCulloch and other frontier counties
were stationed at such outposts as Camp San Saba to
protect settlers from Indians after federal troops
withdrew from the area in 1861. The greatest impact that
the Civil War and Reconstruction had on the development
of McCulloch County was in providing incentive to
families from other southern states to come west and
Extensive settlement of McCulloch
County began in the 1870s; most of the growth was from a
dispersement of people already living in Texas and the
southern United States rather than from an increase in
immigration from other countries. The first census of
the county, taken in 1870, listed the population as 173.
Brady is the county seat.
