The 1788 José Mares expedition passed through the area while travelling from San Antonio to Santa Fe.

On November 21, 1831, in the Brady vicinity, James Bowie, Rezin P. Bowie, David Buchanan, Cephas D. Hamm, Matthew Doyle, Jesse Wallace, Thomas McCaslin, Robert Armstrong, and James Coryell with two servants, Charles and Gonzales, held at bay for a day and a night 164 Caddo and Lipans. After 80 warriors had been killed, the Indians withdrew.[7] Camp San Saba was established in 1852 to protect settlers from Indians.

The Sixth Texas Legislature in 1856 formed McCulloch County and named it for Benjamin Mcculloch, a soldier in the Texas Revolution, a Texas Ranger, a major general in the Texas militia and thereafter a major in the United States Army (United States Volunteers) during the Mexican–American War, sheriff of Sacramento County, a U.S. marshal, and a brigadier general in the army of the Confederate States during the American Civil War.
