Mitchell County Texas
Mitchell county in Texas, named for the brothers Asa and Eli. Mitchell, prominent Texans of early days and soldiers in the Texas Revolution. The area of the county is 900 square miles, and the population in 1890 was 2,059, of whom 1,582 resided at Colorado, the county seat. The assessed values of the county for 1894 amounted to $2,169,122, of which $194,257 are charged to live stock. There are in the county 2 banks with a capital of $200,000, 28 mercantile houses, 1 ice factory, 2 extensive salt works, 15 school houses, with 20 teachers and 504 pupils. The several church organizations are represented and have places of worship. The climate of Mitchell County is delightful, both in winter and summer, and for people suffering from pulmonary complaints, there is a promise of relief if not cure, if they will stay long enough to secure the benefits of a pure, dry atmosphere and almost continuous sunshine. Colorado City is the County Seat.Photo by Larry D. Moore CC BY-SA 3.0MITCHELL COUNTY COURTHOUSE
