Era is an unincorporated community in Cooke County, Texas, United States. It's a small farming village in the southwest portion of the county. Era was founded in 1878, after Judge J.M. Lindsay donated 6 acres for a school. The town was named for Era Hargrave, the daughter of an early settler. Today, the community of Era has a school, post office, volunteer fire department, and a Subway.

About 7 miles west of Era, there is the Liberman Broadcasting Tower Era, one of earth's tallest structures, and as of May 2007 was the tallest structure in Texas.[1] The tower is named for its proximity to Era, though it is much closer to Rosston and Leo.[2]

The Era Independent School District serves area students.
