History: The Witting community can be accessed in the Handbook of Texas Online, Jeff Carroll. The C5 ranch was originally part of a larger holding granted to Edwin Richeson in 1832. After the Civil War, German and Czech immigrants began repacing the Anglo population and small farms pre-dominated. For many years Witting was a thriving community with several businesses and both a Lutheran and a Catholic Church.
