Twin Mountain, a dispersed rural community, was near the Middle Concho River south of the Twin Buttes in southwestern Tom Green County. Though gold was discovered in the area, the amounts were not significant enough to cause a boom. The community had a school with thirteen pupils and one teacher in 1900. By 1933 enrollment had reached twenty-nine, but the town population remained less than 100. Lake Nasworthy, built in 1930, inundated parts of the Twin Mountain community site, and the community was not shown on the 1936 county highway map.
