Macksville, in southern Comanche County, was established around 1910 when the Cotton Belt Railroad was laid through the area. The community, which became a flag station, was named for J. M. (Mack) McCurry, an early settler who owned a large tract of land in the area. Other early settlers included the Livingstons, Stutevilles, Smiths, Allens, and Browns. The main occupation in the area was farming; McCurry's chief crops were berries and peanuts. In 1930 Macksville had a population of seventy-five. By the 1980s the community was a ghost town.
