Stephenville, Texas is uniquely located in rural Texas one-hour southwest of Dallas/Fort Worth for easy access to metropolitan amenities and a major airport, yet isolated from big city stress. A city of over 20,000 friendly people, Stephenville is an inviting, gracious community with a rich western heritage in a beautiful country setting along the Bosque River. It is distinctively Texan – independent, hardworking, and educated. Known as the ‘Cowboy Capital of the World’ and the ‘City of Champions’, Stephenville takes pride in having small town values, where a strong work ethic, family-values, and a giving heart still matter.
