Copperas Cove has a rich history, beginning with settlement in the 1840's, soon after Texas declared its independence. In the late 1800's, people came to Cove for the prime cattle grazing land and the use of the Santa Fe Railroad. The natural basin formed by the five surrounding hills provided a gathering place for their cattle. In the early 1900's, people settled here for commerce and farming. Today, Copperas Cove is part of the large military and business activity in the area. Its citizens are excited about its bright future and proud of the community's dedication to a better tomorrow.
