The McDougall brothers originally settled on the land where Texas Station is now situated about 1840. The property was abandoned in the 1850’s while the brothers tried their luck on the goldfields. When they returned they found their land had been taken by another settler and it was some time before they were able to establish prior claim. In 1936 Texas US was at war with Mexico, fighting for their independence, so the McDougall’s called their property Texas as their dispute was similar.
