Charlotte, Texas. Charlotte is located in southwestern Atascosa County. Charlotte was carved from the Old Tobey Ranch, which was owned by Jourdan Campbell and T. H. Zanderson. The name Charlotte was given by Dr. Charles Simmons, who aided in the development of Atascosa County. Towns in the county were named for all three of his daughters, Charlotte, Imogene, and Christine.

Charlotte was incorporated on December 21, 1946. In 1963 the Charlotte Rotary Club sponsored the Charlotte Community Recreation Association, which organized a little league and a rodeo. The First Baptist Church was organized on January 21, 1914. The Methodist church was established in 1912, with twenty-three charter members.

The first public school was formed in 1913 by Mrs. Sauer. Classes were held in a dance hall over a bakery. By 1914 a new building was constructed, and the school became an independent district by 1919.

Cotton was the once the principle crop around Charlotte. Ranching is still the basic industry and one of the most important jobs. Other ranchers have also established dairy farms. Oil was discovered in 1946 and there are now more than 700 wells in the area.

Today in Charlotte there are 1,637 people, 514 households, and 401 families that call the area home.
