Pleasanton, Texas. Pleasanton is located five miles northeast of Jourdanton in northeast Atascosa County. Founded in 1858, the town became the county seat because of conflicts with Indians that caused the settlers to move the location of the county seat from Amphion. The mouth of Bonita Creek seemed the perfect location for the new seat, so the county residents voted this area, now known as Pleasanton, as the official town site.

In 1860 Pleasanton became county school district number 1. By 1861 the town had a dozen families, two blacksmiths, and three lawyers. A log cabin served as the courthouse for nine years. After the new courthouse was built by William Guynes, the log cabin was rented to the school district until 1875, when a rock schoolhouse was built. As religion is very important to the local area citizens, the old courthouse once doubled as a church.

Although Jourdanton became the county seat in 1910, Pleasanton continued to grow. In 1912 the Missouri Pacific Railroad linked the town to San Antonio, and in 1914 Pleasanton became connected by railroad to Corpus Christi. At this time the population was 1,500. In 1917 the town was officially incorporated.

The area has at least one well know festival each year. It is due to the residents considering the area, the birthplace of the cowboy. The festival, which occurs annually in August, has cook-offs, fiddler contests, and carnivals in tribute to the cattle industry.
