Burleson County encompasses the cities of Caldwell, Somerville and Snook, Texas. Caldwell, the Kolache Capitol of Texas, is an energetic town with friendly people who are eager for expansion and growth and receptive to newcomers. It’s a town full of secret pockets of hidden and not-so-hidden attractions that create an inviting atmosphere for this charming rural community.
Somerville is home to beautiful Lake Somerville and the annual Somerfest. The “largest little city in Texas” is located 28 miles southwest of Bryan/College Station. Somerville is the perfect place to escape the hectic pace of big city life and relax in our small town. Originally a major railroad center and farming community, Somerville’s past is reflected in homes and buildings that date from the early nineteenth century. A walk around town presents a view of a world gone by, a visitor can glimpse that again in the Museum.
And finally, Snook is home of the annual SnookFest, ChiliFest and Slovacek Sausage. Also known as Sebasta or Sebasta’s Corner, Snook is located some 15 miles southeast of Caldwell in eastern Burleson County. Today, Snook draws visitors from all over Texas and the US for the Annual Snook ChiliFest and Snook Rodeo.
