Stephenville is located in Erath County in central Texas approximately 70 miles southwest of Fort Worth. As of the 2010 census, the population was 17,123. Stephenville is home to Tarleton State University and calls itself the "Cowboy Capital of the World," (as does several other towns within the U.S.) The town of Stephenville was first settled in 1854 and within two years, the population had reached 776. The town incorporated in 1889 with the arrival of the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railway. Today, agriculture is the leading industry and Erath County is the states leading milk producer. According to the city's website, the Texas State Comptroller released a report in 1992 in which Erath County ranked as the fifth best county among 205 rural counties in the state for economic development for the previous five years. Stephenville was listed as one of the "100 Best Small Towns in America" in a book compiled by Norman Crampton and published by Prentice Hall. The town is home to the largest private country and western club in the state that features live bands and dancing. Tarleton State University was founded in 1899 and became part of the Texas A&M University System in 1973. Students come from all over the state, as well as 30 states and ten foreign countries. Other places of interest in Stephenville include the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center and the TSU Planetarium.
