Incorporation of the City of Watauga, TX
The petition for incorporation was filed, approved, and ordered on September 24, 1958. The City of Watauga was incorporated on October 11, 1958, after an election.
Many years prior to settlers, Cherokee Indians first settled in Watauga, meaning village of many springs. They were in search of the bountiful game, fertile fields, and clear spring waters. Around 1843, hardy settlers from Tennessee first arrived in the village. Among some of the first settlers were: W.A., Margaret, and James Walker, Jane Weir, Willie Potts, William, Samuel, Martha and Nancy Evins, William, Julia, and Mary Carlton, Syrena Stowel and Sarah Henderson. Thankful for the rich farmland and abundant fish and game, and aware of their dependence on God, the early settlers organized the first Church in Watauga, the Willow Springs Presbyterian Church on December 14, 1867. In 1972, a state historical marker was presented to designate the Church’s historical recognition for serving the Lord for over one hundred years.
