The town was located on the Double Mountain Fork Brazos River fourteen miles northwest of Hamlin in southern Stonewall County, Texas, United States. Contents 1 History 2 Rath City and Native Americans 3 See also 4 References 5 External links History The town was founded in 1876. Its original establishment was meant to capitalize on the buffalo trade and it was Stonewall County's first settlement. In 1877 the town housed a store, two saloons, a dance hall, and a few tents and dugouts. The town's namesake was Charles Rath, whose store, built in 1875, was the structure the village grew around. A declining buffalo population ended the settlement and it was abandoned in 1880.[1] Rath City and Native Americans In Feb. 1877, after buffalo hunter Marshall Sewell was killed by Native Americans, Rath City became a rallying point for over 300 frontiersmen. A group of 45 men left Rath City in pursuit of a Comanche war party led by Black Horse, in a campaign known as the Buffalo Hunters' War or Staked Plains War. The men pursued the Comanche to a site in present-day Lubbock. A battle ensued on March 18, 1877, at Yellow House Canyon; its results were inconclusive. The hunters returned to Rath City and thus ended one of the last Indian campaigns on the southern plains.[1] Historical marker at former Rath City Collapsed bridge structure, Double Mountain Fork Brazos River, Rath City See also Double Mountain Fork Brazos River Yellow House Canyon Llano Estacado Double Mountain (Texas) References ^ a b Rath City, Texas: Texas Handbook Online, University of Texas at Austin External links Rath City, Texas on History of Rath City, Texas v · d · eMunicipalities and communities of Stonewall County, Texas County seat: Aspermont Town Aspermont Unincorporated communities Old Glory | Peacock | Rath City | Swenson This Texas state location article is a stub.
