Welcome to an historical and genealogical site for Palo Pinto County, Texas. Palo Pinto County is located in the North Texas Hill Country through which the Pinto Hills weave their way from Cross Timbers on the east to the North Central Plains in the west. Through this vast landscape runs the mighty Brazos River, as well as many smaller rivers and creeks.

The history and genealogy of Palo Pinto County, Texas, is as diverse as is its geography.

Come along with us as we explore its history, from prehistoric times to present and its genealogy, which embodies what is most interesting about the west, and about Texas, itself.

Contact the webmaster, Sue Seibert, local historian and genealogist. Contact photographer, Raf Seibert, who took this photo of the county courthouse.
