Texas County, located in the Oklahoma panhandle, was created at statehood in 1907 and named for the state of Texas.  In the 1880s, two cattle trails went through Texas County, and raising cattle became a large industry in the area at that time.  The railroad was built in 1901 and with it came settlers.  Oil and gas exploration began in Texas County in the 1920s and has since been an important economic feature.  The No Man’s Land Museum in Goodwell displays the history of the Texas County and the Oklahoma Panhandle, as well as American Indian artifacts.  Optima National Wildlife Refuge offers camping and hunting. 

In 2000, census records showed 20,017 people living in Texas County.  Countless assets exist for tracing genealogy in Texas County including legal records, cemetery records and a local genealogical society.  Valuable resources for researching genealogy in Texas County are provided below, including a list of existing towns, a list of ghost towns, the county courthouse address, a detailed map of the county and a list of cemeteries located within the county.  A list of places to visit in Texas County is also provided for visitors to the area.
