Muskabe Community
Navarro County, Texas


Cities and Towns


Located near the site of Chatfield in the northeastern corner of Navarro County. It was probably founded in the mid 1840s and was thus one of the earliest settlements in the county. For many years it was a regional trading center. A Muskabe post office opened in 1848 and operated until 1867. The town apparently began to decline after the Civil War and by the 1880s it no longer appeared on maps.


  • Also spelled Muskete or Muskobee.  Barbara Knox has several old letters headed "Muskete" with the dates in the 1860s.
