Itasca is situated along Interstate 35 West and is positioned to the south of Fort Worth and to the north of Waco. This makes Itasca an ideal midpoint between these two cities, located in the northeastern corner of Hill County at the edge of the Blackland Prairie. This strategic location offers numerous opportunities for shopping, exploring, and engaging in recreational activities. Itasca is uniquely situated at the head of Richland Creek, serving as a natural watershed dividing the Brazos and Trinity River basins.
The town gets its name from Lake Itasca, which is located at the source of the Mississippi River in Minnesota. It began as a railroad station in 1881 and quickly gained popularity thanks to the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas Railroad Service. In 1885, Itasca was officially established as a town. The town even made a humorous appearance in the 1984 Willie Nelson film "Songwriter," with Willie's character joking about attending a "weavers convention in Itasca, Texas."
