Our gracious community is positioned in Central Texas ideally located between major metropolitan areas. Over the years, the citizens of Gatesville have retained a small town atmosphere of sincerity and hospitality. Known as the “Spur Capital of Texas” and “The Best Place to Raise Kids in Texas”, Gatesville is a great choice to start a business, live, retire, and raise your children.
The City is proud of its heritage and entrepreneurial roots – from the time it was organized in the mid-1850’s, Gatesville served as an important frontier supply station and later as a major shipping and supply center. Gatesville supported farmers, ranchers and western expansion, as well as the previous industrial efforts of saw and grist mills. Gatesville still embraces strong business development…because it is good for the people who live here and makes moving to Gatesville a good thing.
Gatesville has so much to offer – not a typical ‘big box’ town, but one that showcases numerous entrepreneurs, creative thinkers, parks, clubs, and so much more.
