Thorndale is a city in Milam County, Texas, with a small part in Williamson County. The population was 1,336 at the 2010 census. It was founded in 1878 about 3 miles west of its present site, and moved to its current site in 1880. 
Antonio Gómez, a Mexican-American teenager, was lynched on June 19, 1911, in Thorndale following the stabbing of a German-American garage owner, Charles Zieschang. Concerns about prejudice and violence against Mexican-American youths, such as the Gómez hanging, inspired Jovita Idár, to found the League of Mexican Women (La Liga Femenil Mexicanista).
