Washita County was the original county "H," so designated by Congress. The residents named the county "Washita" after the Washita River, the principal stream of that region. It has a total area of 1,008 square miles of which practically all is farming land with about 350,000 acres in cultivation. Cotton, corn, oats, kaffle corn, milo maize, broom corn, alfalfa and forage sorghum are the chief products. Much live stock, also, is raised.
