COMANCHE SPRINGS, TEXAS. Comanche Springs was two miles west of McGregor in western McLennan County. A post office was established there in May 1872, with John S. Elmore as postmaster; the office was discontinued in 1875. The community was bypassed in the early 1880s by the Texas and St. Louis and the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe railroads. Subsequently Comanche Springs was gradually abandoned as its residents moved their homes and businesses to the new town of McGregor.
