History & History Related Items

Fort Hood history:

Fort Hood, Texas, is a 339 square mile installation surrounded by rolling hills, lakes, and an abundance of wildlife. The Fort Hood area consists of a cluster of small towns that take great pride in the community spirit. The first train steamed into town in May 1882, giving birth to the city of Killeen. The railroad positioned Killeen as the central shipping point for the surrounding agricultural area. Throughout the late 1800s up to 1942, Killeen remained a small but bustling rural community of less than 2,000 residents. In 1950, Killeen's future was secured when Congress designated Camp Hood as Fort Hood, a permanent installation.
