Goldthwaite got its beginning when the railroad began working its way to connect the East and West. The town was named after a man named George (Joe) Goldthwaite who was an official of the railroad. The City was chartered in 1907.
The Chamber of Commerce is very active and is located in our historic jail which was built in 1888. Our historical museum is located in downtown Goldthwaite. Goldthwaite offers a full service of restaurants, motels, retail shopping, banking facilities, nursing homes, medical services and RV parks. Goldthwaite is supported by a variety of churches.
Goldthwaite is on the Texas Hill Country Regional Christmas Lighting Trail. Nestled in the beautiful hill country of Central Texas, Goldthwaite awaits you, ready to delight and surprise you with holiday treats for the whole family. Join us for a fantasy experience throughout the holidays for special seasonal events, spectacular lighting, and splendid shopping in the friendly, small town atmosphere.
We appreciate the hunters and sports persons who visit our town every year. Texas hunters are welcomed every year with a
special day of recognition. A bar-b-que, sponsored by the Mills County Trophy Wildlife Management Association, is provided
for the land owners and hunters to promote conservation through wildlife management.
