“The Cowboy Capital of the World”

A BRIEF HISTORY

Stephenville is located in Erath County,  in north central Texas.  Founded in 1856, it is home to Tarleton State University.  The city is named after John M. Stephen, who settled there in 1854 and donated the land for the town site surveyed by George B. Erath when the county was organized in 1856.

 

 

Stephenville was incorporated in 1889, with the arrival of the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railway. In the 1890s, many of the buildings around the town square were built, and Tarleton State University was established. The presence of the university has helped to shape the growth and culture of the city, particularly since the 1920s.

Stephenville is a pleasant friendly community where people are quick to extend warm greetings and where shopping is handy.  The college atmosphere adds energy and ‘the living is easy’.  It makes for a wonderful place to ‘slow down.’

 

 

September Song’s owners, Ed and Marlene Dupas came to Stephenville in 2000.  Their main personal goals were to live closer to children and grandchildren, and to enjoy warmer southern winters.   Though they both had taken early retirements, they were not ready to be non-working.  Since hospitality comes naturally to them, especially to Marlene, they decided to look for a large house suitable for a bed and breakfast.  At that time Stephenville did not have an active B&B.

 

 

The house they chose is a mission style home built around 1925.   It is ideally situated close to both the town center and the Tarleton State University campus.  It took about a year to  make modifications and decorating improvements to the main house and carriage house.  The B&B was opened in September 2001. The overriding intention in decorating was the creation of an atmosphere of warmth and comfort.  Hence their advertising slogan “The Comforts of Home Away from Home”.

 

 

It has been a great adventure  and pleasure to welcome guests from many different parts of the country and the world.  Just sharing with them in conversation is often like a geography lesson, where we learn about places we may never get to visit. Judging by the positive comments in the guest books, visitors return home with positive views of Stephenville and of their stay at September Song.

 

 

Our goal is to make our guests feel special and extraordinary.  Frequently by the time our guests leave we feel as though we have been long time friends.  What a wonderful gift!
