Named after a nearby creek, Cherokee is an unincorporated community in San Saba County, Texas. The area hit the maps in the 1850’s through P.p. “Pop” Woodard. The location changed a few times before ending up in the permanent area, which was laid out by David Seth Hanna in 1878.
Today, the community has a general store, post office, and volunteer fire department. Hunting and ranching are the prime sources of revenue for Cherokee. The best hunting in Cherokee is in the fall season. The main agricultural production is mainly pecans, sheep, and poultry.
The Crain White Tail Deer Hunts is a family owned hunting company. They offer whitetail deer hunts and have produced some outstanding trophy bucks.
