Source: Photos by Barry Caraway, <>, Aug 2002


LOCATION: 8 miles north of Bertram on Ranch Road 1174N.

Once a busy community, named for Mrs. Martha (Webster) Strickling, who settled here in 1853 with husband, Marmaduke. As a child, she survived Webster massacre near Leander, 1839, and months of Indian captivity. Post office opened here, 1857, and Strickling became a mail terminal and stage stop. Tons of lumber and buffalo hides were hauled through here. The town had a school, churches, a doctor's office, livery stable, blacksmith shop and saloons. Strickling gradually declined when bypassed by the railroad, 1882, the cemetery remaining. (1970)
