History
Texas County was formed from the middle third of old District Seven, "No-Man's-Land", known as Beaver County for a time. The name Texas was given it by its residents, practically all of whom at that time were from the state of Texas . It has an area of 1,992 square miles, practically all of which is level. Live stock, corn, wheat, alfalfa, broom corn, hay, water melons, and cantaloupes are the chief products.
