Gunsight, a mostly ghost town in Stephens County with only six residents as of the last census, dates back to 1879. It was named for a set of low mountains that from a distance look like the V-shaped notch in the middle of a gunsight.
A year later its settlement, Gunsight got a post office, which lasted till the Breckenridge Oil boom of the late teens played out in the 1920’s when the Wichita Falls and Southern Railroad closed its station there.
