Site of the circa 18,000-acre Comanche Reservation established on the Clear Fork of the Brazos, north-central Texas, in 1855. About 450 Penateka, or southern Comanches settled there and were fairly successful at farming, in spite of droughts. But tribal discord, continued hunting and raiding, and inadequate protection (from Anglo settlers) by U.S. troops, among other problems, doomed the reservation effort, and the Comanches were removed to Indian Territory in 1859.
