The City was established as the seat of government for Navarro County on its creation in 1848. David Mitchell donated 100 acres for a townsite and partnered with Thomas Smith in platting the area and selling lots. The first courthouse was built a year later, a log structure which served for four years until a frame building replaced it in 1853. Courthouse Square attracted a large number of business establishments and by 1855, the town's first newspaper, the Prairie Blade. [City of Corsicana, History,, accessed March, 2015]
