Bigfoot, Texas. Bigfoot is located eighteen miles from Pearsall in Frio County. The site was settled about 1865 and during its early years was known as Connally's Store, for Bob Connally. D. T. Winters established a gin and mill there by 1880. When James Connally secured a post office for the community in 1883, he named it Bigfoot, for William Bigfoot Wallace, a resident of the community.

A Baptist church was organized there in the 1880s, and by 1890 Bigfoot had a general store and an estimated population of twenty-five. During the 1890s citizens opened a public school. The Bigfoot school consolidated with that of Devine in 1949.

With the development in the 1950s of the Bigfoot oilfield to the south, the community grew, and in 1964 it had a population of 210, three churches, two businesses, and a number of dwellings. Today there is a population of 503 area citizens.

The Bigfoot Wallace museum is in the community is one of the local attractions.
