Originally called Plum Creek, the city of Lockhart TX is near a site of fierce battle that took place Aug. 12, 1840. A large war party of Comanches successfully swept down Guadalupe Valley all the way to the Gulf Coast, killing settlers, stealing horses, plundering and burning settlements. A volunteer force of settlers and Texas Rangers met the returning war party and defeated them at what is called the Battle of Plum Creek. The present city is named for Byrd Lockhart, pioneer surveyor. Today the city is a center for agriculture, farming, oil and other diversified industries.
