The land in the area was first settled by the McDougall brothers, who found squatters there on returning from the goldfields. Once their legal right to the land was recognised, they named their property in honour of the rather more famous dispute between the United States and Mexico over territory in Texas, USA.Texas was connected by the Texas railway line from Inglewood in November 1930 with the town being served by the Texas railway station. The line was closed in 1994.Up until about 1986, tobacco farming was an important industry in the area and many Italian families settled the area to run and work the tobacco farms.At the, Texas had a population of 693.EconomyFarming is the dominant industry in the Texas region, although there is also a silver mine.
