Welcome to Quitman, Texas, which marks our second time around all 50 states! Quitman was originally settled in 1850 and is the county seat of Wood County. The town was named for John A. Quitman who was elected governor of Mississippi that same year. Quitman is the birthplace of Academy Award winning actor Sissy Spacek. In addition to Spacek, the town has also been home to several other interesting characters that Dr. Jess introduces us to in our town tidbits. We hope you enjoy out trip to Quitman!
