DeWitt County was formed from Goliad, Gonzales and Victoria counties in 1846 and named for Green DeWitt. It comprises 909 square miles.
DeWitt County is the home of three of the oldest and largest festivals in the Crossroads area – the Yoakum Tom Tom Festival (shared with Lavaca County), Yorktown’s Western Days and Cuero’s Turkeyfest, celebrating 40 years in 2012 and 100 years since the original Turkey Trot.
Long known for its farming and ranching, the oil and gas industry associated with the Eagle Ford Shale has made huge inroads in the county in recent years.
