Goldthwaite

Goldthwaite is located in Mills County of Central Texas and was founded in 1885 not far from the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway. The town had economic ups and downs due to labor shortages, drought, and economic issues after the railroad moved its division point further away in 1890. However, starting in the mid 1930s, agricultural diversification helped Goldthwaite recover economically while the locals focused on pecans, sheep, cattle, wool, and mohair (yarn or fabric made from the wool of the Angora goat). 

According to the 2019 census, Goldthwaite’s population is a little over 2,000 residents. 

Dining

Although not a large city, Goldthwaite still has plenty of restaurant options to choose from. Lucky T Ranch (formerly Peabody’s Cafe) and Cahoots Cafe are family-style restaurants serving down-home country cooking morning, noon, and night.  Southside Tavern serves up delectable gourmet options for an elegant night out, and Fisher Street Bar & Grill makes for a great casual date night location. There are also lots of choices if you’re craving Mexican fare, such as El Tapatio, La Hacienda de Jalisco, and Mary’s Tacos & Burgers!

Shopping

Artisan Guild Gift Shop is a great shop if you’re in the market for hand-made seasonal or souvenir items. You can check out Diamond P Western Wear when you need new hats, clothes, boots, and accessories for any occasion. To pick up some sweet treats grown and packaged locally, you won’t want to miss a trip to Pecans.com!

Outdoors

Partnering with the Smithsonian, Texas Botanical Garden & Native American Interpretive Center helps visitors see, understand, and experience native plants and waterways, Native American life, and archaeology of the surrounding area. It’s a beautiful and educational way to spend the day with the family! If you need some recreation, the Goldthwaite Municipal Golf Course is a 9-hole course and is open 7 days a week. 

Historical Sites

The Mills County Historical Museum showcases the family heirlooms of Mills County residents and includes items such as an old family wagon, pianos, family quilts, and even the first car to have been registered in the county. The museum creates an edifying experience for all, plus there’s no charge for admission!
