Hartley County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. In 2000, its population was 5,537. It is named for Oliver C. Hartley and Rufus K. Hartley, two early Texas legislators and lawyers. The county seat is Channing.
In 1891 the county was organized with the tiny town of Hartley as county seat. County judge Rucker Tanner presided over a commissioners' court made up of Dick Pincham, W. C. Ferguson, George W. Knighton, and G. W. Lambert. Ben Lawson became the county clerk, and J. M. Robinson was made sheriff. M. Montoya became the tax assessor-collector, and J. H. Little was named county attorney. After an election in 1896, the county government was moved to Channing, where it remained despite periodic attempts to move it again; in 1903 a final election confirmed Channing as the county seat. In 1898 a weekly newspaper, the Channing Courier, was started.
