Granbury, the county seat of Hood County, Texas, is conveniently located only about thirty-five miles southwest of historic Fort Worth. It boasts a colorful historic past and serves as a model for the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Program. When the town was founded in 1860, it only consisted of a square and a log cabin courthouse. Gradually other buildings were erected around the square and many of these are now recognized as registered historic landmarks.
The first two Hood County courthouses burned down and were replaced in 1890 by one constructed of Brazos Limestone. It stands as the focal point of the historic square that was the first in Texas to be placed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The town was named for the brave Confederate General Hiram B. Granbury who led his troops from the area into battle during the Civil War. Davy Crockett's wife Elizabeth Crockett made her home in Hood County following the Texas Revolution against Mexico.
