Kingsville was once known as the Wild Horse Desert. It was founded in 1904. The land was once part of the Rincon de Santa Gertrudis Spanish Land Grant which Captain Richard King purchased in 1853. He later founded the King Ranch which began as a cow camp on the Santa Gertrudis Creek. Mrs. Henrietta King donated land in the area for the townsite, many churches and the South Texas State Teachers College which later became Texas A&M University at Kingsville.
