MOZO, TEXAS. Mozo is on the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad and Farm Road 971 nine miles northeast of Georgetown in central Williamson County. The community formed around a gin built about 1909 by the Mazoch family, and the name Mozo may be a corruption of Mazoch. The railroad built loading platforms by the gin, and a store, a community center, and a house for gin hands existed on the site at different times. In 1988 Mozo consisted of a few scattered farms.
