Stephenville is a one of a kind town. It defiantly has a small town feel, without being TOO small. Growing up here I feel like I had the best childhood possible. With a town crazy about football, drama, and rodeo, my experience was defiantly unique. Tarelton State University has helped the town explode with new restaurants and businesses. Stephenville is a perfect mix of a hometown feel, with new and exciting things happening frequently enough that you don't get bored.

I really like the town of Stephenville, Texas. If you adapt and are more comfortable in small towns, then Stephenville is just right for you! You definitely feel that small town atmosphere! Also, what I really like about this town is since this town is fairly small, everything from restaurants to businesses to grocery stores are relatively close to each other! There is also a University, Tarleton State University here, with a also a community college, Ranger College, as it is called, as well as a high school and jr high school and a few elementary schools. You can also find a church easily, and I really enjoy the town park beside the Bosque river where you could relax, go fishing, or take a nice little jog! Stephenville is most definitely the place to live for small town lovers!
Stephenville Texas is a quaint, quiet town in the central of Texas mostly dedicated to the dairy and ranching industries. With a population of roughly 21,000 people. It's a great town to raise children in and and attend school. As there is both a university and a Junior college. As someone who was born and raised in Stephenville, I do recommend coming for a visit if you are looking for a smaller town with lots to offer.
