Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 5.9 square miles (15.3 km²), all of it land.

Origin

Hebbronville is located on land which once formed part of Las Noriacitas, one of the earliest ranches founded in the area. The town's namesake, James Richard Hebbron, acquired the land, in about 1880, from the descendants of the original grantee, Ingacio Benevides. Hebbronville itself was created in 1883, when the Texas-Mexican Railway Company built a railroad through the area. Francisco P. Peña, operator of Peña Station on this route, refused to sell any land to the Texas-Mexican for a townsite. The company then approached J. R. Hebbron, a local rancher, who arranged for the sale of land for a new townsite, near Peña. The old train station at Peña was then loaded onto a flatcar, moved 1½ miles west and named Hebbronville.

For a time, Hebbronville ranked as the largest cattle-shipping center in the country and it continues to be a hub of ranching activity.

A photograph of James R. Hebbron hangs in the Jim Hogg County Courthouse, 102, East Tilley Street, Hebbronville. He was born in London, England, but spent most of his adult life in California, mainly around Salinas.
