Camp Llano, at the junction of Rock Creek and the Llano River in Mason County, was established by James M. Norris on March 29, 1862, as a ranger station for the Frontier Regiment. It was manned by members of the ranger company of Capt. H. T. Davis and engaged in scouting duty, probably until the consolidation of the Frontier Regiment in March 1864.
