Barber Mountain is four miles southwest of Mineral Wells in east central Palo Pinto County (at 32°46' N, 98°12' W). With its elevation of 1,097 feet above sea level, it rises 226 feet above nearby Farm Road 1195. The surrounding rolling hills are surfaced by clayey and sandy loam that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. Barber Mountain was named for George Barber, who settled in the area between 1850 and 1857.
