Bosque County Court House

Much of the beauty and heritage of Bosque County is closely entwined with its abundant water-ways-the Bosque and Brazos Rivers and two lakes, Meridian and Whitney. The county's distinctive pathways reflect its history -- the Cleng Peerson Memorial Highway, the Old Chisholm Trail, the Sante Fe Railroad, and the Texas Lakes Trail.

Early Spanish explorers bestowed the name Bosque (pronounced boss-kee) meaning "wooded." The first survey for land grants in the Bosque Valley came about in 1839. In 1849, a few years after Texas attained statehood, the first permanent settlers arrived to a territory still roamed by Native Americans. By 1854, the number of settlers living in Bosque Territory had increased, and Bosque County was created. Merdian was named the County seat.
