TUNA, TEXAS. Tuna was six miles south of Cotulla on the International and Great Northern line in west central La Salle County. The community was founded sometime after 1880 as a stop on the International and Great Northern and in the 1930s had a railroad depot and a collection of houses. Tuna was shown on some maps of La Salle County as late as 1965.
