|Created in 1876 and organized in 1891, Dallam
County, Texas was named for Republic of Texas Attorney James
W. Dallam (1818-1847).|
Texline, located on
the line of the Fort Worth and Denver City Railroads and the
only town in the County when it was organized, served as the
first County Seat. A Courthouse was built in 1891. Ten
years later, when the Rock Island Railroad built a line
through the County, the new town of Dalhart was established
where the Rock Island, Fort Worth and Denver City Railroad
lines crossed. The County Commissioners voted to move the
County Seat to Dalhart in 1903, and, in May of 1903 an
election was held to approve bonds for a Courthouse in
County government soon outgrew the 1903 building
and, in 1922, the voters approved more bonds for a new
Courthouse. Designed by Smith and Townes, the classical
revival structure was completed in 1923. Built of brick, with
cast stone detailing, the Courthouse continues to serve the
citizens of Dallam County to this day.
