Tarleton is located 65 miles (100 km) southwest of Fort Worth,
Texas in Stephenville, the county seat of Erath County. With a population of 16,000, Stephenville provides a
combination of small-town security and proximity to Dallas/Fort Worth. Most
university activities take place on Tarleton's centrally located, 173 acre (700,000 m²) main campus. A 600 acre (2.4 km²)
university farm and the 1,200 acre (4.8 km²) Hunewell Ranch provide additional educational facilities. Recently, Tarleton also
began offering programs at its new Granbury location, the Dora Lee Langdon Cultural and Educational Center.
