About the Community

A steamboat town known as Hord or Hord’s Landing was founded near the river in 1881. When the railroad came through the area in 1893, most of the town migrated across the floodplain to the site that is now Tebbetts. Tebbetts was named for Louis B. Tebbetts, a railroad officer with the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (MKT or “Katy”). Naming railroad towns after company officials was a common practice. Other examples include Peers and Gore, two communities on the east end of the trail.
