The city began as a Spanish trading post, which was in turn handed over to the United States and continued as so for quite some time. It was known as a rugged place, full of wild and lawless people, and it wasn\’t until the early 1800\’s that the city was built and law was placed in the city. During the Civil War it was a strategic point, due to its location on the Red River, and was fought over by both the North and South several times during the war. After the war, the city flourished, and today is a quaint town with a rich historical background.
