The county of Lubbock was founded in 1876, named after Thomas Saltus Lubbock, a Confederate
colonel and founder of the Texas Rangers.
The town of Lubbock was not founded until 1890, when it was formed from a unique merger arrangement between two
smaller towns, "Old Lubbock" and Monterey.
Lubbock County is one of the oldest inhabited places in the state, if not the oldest.
In the northern part of the city of Lubbock is the archeological site known as the Lubbock Lake Site, the first
archeological site in Texas to be entered on the National Register of Historic Places. There, in Yellow House
Canyon, preserved in the twenty-foot wall of a dry lakebed, lies one of the very few known records of human habitation
in Texas reaching back uninterrupted for at least 12,000 years.
