Somervell County Information
As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 8,490. Its county seat is Glen Rose, and it is also the largest community. The county was established in 1875 and is a total area of 192 square miles. The county was named for Alexander Somervell, Secretary of War for the Republic of Texas.

Paleontologist Roland T. Bird of the American Museum of Natural History in New York spotted the Adams “giant man tracks” in a tourist shop in Gallup, New Mexico, and, while recognizing them as fakes, was still intrigued enough to travel to Somervell County to see the Glen Rose area for himself. Bird’s visit resulted in a 2-year project to uncover the dinosaur prints. The American Museum of Natural History, the University of Texas at Austin, the Smithsonian Institution, and several local museums retain samples of what are said to be the best-preserved tracks in the United States. The land along the Paluxy River for Dinosaur Valley State Park was purchased by the State of Texas in 1968, and the park opened to the public in 1972
