Coke County, created by the Texas Legislature March 13, 1889, is located in West Central Texas. It was originally part of Bexar County, whose County Seat was San Antonio. Coke County was named for Richard Coke, political statesman and a very prominent early Governor of the state. Hayrick was the county seat for about a year. The present county seat, Robert Lee, was named for Robert E. Lee, Confederate General, who once visited in the county. Click here for more information about the history of Coke County.
