OBREGON, TEXAS. Obregon was a switch on the Santa Fe Railroad in southeastern Coleman County. It was named in the 1920s, probably for Álvaro Obregón, when a prankster spread a rumor that Mexicans were coming to capture the settlement. No community center was reported in 1940, but in 1948 county maps showed a church, a school, and scattered dwellings and farms in and around Obregon.
