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 start
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
