Facts for Renters
Hallsville was first founded in 1839 after Fort Crawford was built west of the current city location. The fort was built by W.C. Crawford as a method for protection from Native Americans in the area. By 1849, the fort had added a church, a Masonic hall, a school and a post office. Twenty years later, the Southern Pacific Railway crossed north of Fort Crawford and settlers moved to the railroad and named the settlement after a railroad official. Today, the only part of the land that remains is a cemetery.
The same year, a post office known as Hallville opened. The first business to open in the area was a saloon. By 1870, the town was incorporated.
The town burst with development, housing over 50 businesses. Some of the main exports for the area included wool, cowhides and cotton. By 1872, the Texas and Pacific company took over the railroad and placed tracks somewhere else, causing the area to lose a significant amount of business. By the 1900s, the town boomed back and changed its name to Hallsville.
Today, the city is home to many bustling and successful businesses.
