Hico, TX Area Scholarships

Hico (/ˈhaɪkoʊ/, HY-koh) is a small city located in Hamilton and Erath counties in central Texas, United States. The town motto is "Where Everybody Is Somebody!"

Named for its founder's unincorporated hometown in Calloway County in southwestern Kentucky near Murray, just north of the Tennessee state boundary, Hico's original location was on Honey Creek. When the Texas Central line (part of the historic Katy Railroad) was built nearby, the citizens moved 2.5 miles (4.0 km) to the rail line. Hico was incorporated in 1883 and became the Hamilton County shipping center. Over the years, it became a cattle and cotton market. Today, ranching and tourism dominate the local economy.

In 1903, Kentucky-based evangelist Mordecai Ham held the first of his 75 Texas revival meetings in Hico. There were 150 professions of faith in Jesus Christ.
