This community derives its name from Peta Nocona, father of Quanah Parker and the last of the great Comanche chiefs. Today, the city is known for producing quality leather goods, from signature cowboy boots to baseball and softball gloves. Revitalization efforts are seen in its growing downtown. The city has two parks and two 18-hole golf courses. Events include Mardi Gras parades and the Vicari National Car Auction in the spring.
