Nocona, Texas



Nocona is steep in heritage. From the thunderous hooves driving the Chisholm Trail to the Native Americans hunting their prey; Nocona has always been an entrepreneurial town. The leather goods industry hosted its first female-owned boot making business in the early 1900s and leather goods have been a great part of our history ever since. The only American-Made baseball glove factory can be found right here in Nocona, Texas.

Nocona has taken its past and turned it into a thriving, family friendly, fun loving atmosphere with social gatherings throughout the year. We are home to the Horton Classic Car Museum bringing in people to our small town for big events! We now are The Official Classic Car Capital of Texas. No wonder Nocona was listed as one of the “Top 5 Most Fun Small Towns in America” by Rand McNally.

Come To Nocona For a Day, A Weekend, Or a Lifetime.
