Glen Rose, Texas
1615 Northeast Big Bend Trail, Glen Rose, TX, USA Directions

The area was first settled in 1849 by Charles Barnard, who opened a trading post near Comanche Peak. When Somervell County was formed on March 15, 1875, Glen Rose was designated as its county seat. Throughout the period from the 1900s to the 1920s, Glen Rose was home to approximately 1,000 people. The area's mineral springs attracted numerous doctors and self-styled healers to the community. During Prohibition, the area was a center of moonshining and Glen Rose became known as the "whiskey woods capital of the state." Glen Rose is located at 32°14′12″N 97°45′14″W (32.236637, -97.753823), around the junction of U.S. Highway 67 and State Highway 144 in central Somervell County.
