Historical Trails - Buffalo Gap Village
Buffalo Gap, Texas is a glimpse of the Wild West as it really was. Buffalo Gap was founded at the site of a natural pass through which bison herds traveled. It was a stop for cowboys on the Great Western Cattle Trail. In the late 1800s it was the spot where buffalo hunters camped. By 1880, it had been named county seat and had a population of 200.
