Groesbeck, centrally located, is the hub for most of Limestone County’s attractions which lie on the outskirts of town or within easy driving distance. Founded in 1871 as a railroad town, Groesbeck became the County Seat in 1878. Visitors will find a friendly lifestyle that harkens to a slower pace of days gone by.
