WILDCAT, TEXAS (Wilbarger County). Wildcat is on a local road just north of Wildcat Creek and three miles north of Vernon in north central Wilbarger County. A school was established near the creek in 1889 and became the meeting place for area settlers. In 1911 a Sunday school was started at the school, and a Methodist church was organized in 1915. The school served a sizable district north of the Pease River until it was consolidated with the Vernon schools in 1948. County maps of the 1980s indicated a church and a small community at the site.
