Jefferson County is bordered on the south by the Red River and Texas, with Cotton County on the west, Stephens County on the north and Carter and Love Counties on the east. Created at 1907 statehood, the county was named to honor U. S. Pres. Thomas Jefferson. The incorporated towns are Addington, Cornish, Hastings, Ringlilng, Ryan, Sugden, Terral, and Waurika (the county seat). The county lies in the Redbed Plains physiographic region, a subregion of the Osage Plains. The terrain
is mainly flat or rolling prairie. Beaver and Mud creeks and their smaller tributaries drain the county into the Red River.
