Stephenville, a town of just over 15,000 people, in rural Erath County is approximately 70 miles Southwest of Fort Worth. The town has a long western heritage with numerous current and former World Champion Rodeo stars living in the community. Due to its historical site along several major cattle drives, the town is connected by multiple State Highways making it easily accessible by car.
