HISTORY

Welcome to Kosse, Texas

A Little Town With A Big Heart.

Kosse, Texas is located in Limestone County at the intersection of State Highways 7 & 14 near the Falls County line. The area was initially settled in the 1840s, two miles to the east, and was called Eutaw. The Houston & Texas Central Railway set aside land two miles west of Eutaw for a townsite when it came to the area in 1869, and an act of the Texas Legislature incorporated the town of Kosse in 1871.

Once A Sinclair, Always A Sinclair

Kosse, Texas is a little town with a big heart, the birthplace of the "King of Western Swing," Bob Wills, and home to an abandoned Sinclair Gas Station.

Due to some business dealings in 1969, Sinclair stations west of the Mississippi River rebranded as ARCO and were later closed in the 1980s when ARCO pulled out of the gas station business in Texas. As a result, it hasn't been until recently that Sinclair branded stations have started making a comeback in Texas.
