Overview

Introduction to Cuero, Texas

Cuero, Texas, in De Witt county, is 26 miles NW of Victoria, Texas (center to center) and 76 miles E of San Antonio, Texas.

Cuero History

This region was named after Cuero Creek or the Arroyo del Cuero (Creek of the Rawhide) as it is called by the Spanish. It earned this name because when wild cattle became stuck in the mud on the creek bed, the local Indians would kill them. In the late 19th century, Cuero was chosen as a midway stopping point on the Indianola to the San Antonio railroad built by the Gulf, Western Texas and Pacific Railway. People began to settle a few months before the railway line was completed. A city government was formed in 1873 and the town was incorporated in 1875. Cuero was noted as one of the largest cattle and dairy shippers in the state and its huge turkey industry earned it the title "turkey capital of the world."
