Zephyr is on US Highway 84 twelve miles east of Early in southeast Brown County. It was originally located on the banks of Blanket Creek, a mile east of the present site. Zephyr, was first used by two land surveyors who were trapped in the area by a blue norther in the 1850s and are said to have given the town its ironic name for the fierce wind.
In 1909 a tornado demolished the town, leaving more than thirty-four people dead and many injured. This tornado remains one of Texas’s deadly tornadoes in history. Today the town is primarily a farming & ranching community with trophy hunting ranches.
