  •  CollageRobert Lee (pop. 1171) county seat of Coke County is at the junction of Highways 158 and 208 and the confluence of Mountain Creek and the Colorado River, 31 miles north of San Angelo in the valley of the Edwards Plateau. 

    The town was founded by R.E. Carliedge and L.B. Harris and was named for General Robert E. Lee.  The men pushed to move the county seat from Hayrick to Robert Lee due to water availability.  In 1891 Robert lee won the county seat.  In 1892 the population was 570 and had 20 businesses, including a bank and a weekly newspaper, the Coke County Rustler, now the Observer Enterprise.  The town incorporated in 1929. 

    The first Saturday in October is the date for the Street Affair. Come early, stay late.  The first Saturday in November sees the Hunter’s BarBQ Dinner in full swing. 
    Other attractions are a nine-hole golf course, Lake Spence, bird watching, and beautiful scenic drives through plateau and mesa valleys.

    Robert Lee supports its school, Robert Le ISD (rated exemplary) is building a new K-12 school scheduled to open in the fall of 2010. The town also supports activities, nine churches, Ag and 4-H projects, civic organizations, and all projects related to the community’s interests.  You are welcome to join us.
