Sites and Attractions in Lynn County

  • Most of the remainder of the population lived on farms and ranches. Local attractions include the Pioneer Museum in Tahoka and the Dan Blocker Museum in O'Donnell.

  • Lynn County was initially occupied by Plains Apaches, who were replaced by a more modern Apachean people around A.D. 1400–1500. During the eighteenth century the warlike Comanches pushed into the Panhandle-Plains region of Texas and ousted the Apaches.

Farming and Ranching in Lynn County 

  • The sandy loam, black, and gray soils of the county support both large-scale cotton farming and the ranching industry. Rich prairie grasses are native to the area. Mesquite is a pervasive pest on ranchlands, despite ongoing attempts to eradicate it. The elevation in Lynn County ranges from 2,650 feet to 3,300 feet above sea level. The annual precipitation averages 17.88 inches. Temperatures range from an average of 27° F in January to an average high of 94° in July. The average growing season is 217 days long.

  • By the 1990s the county had established a stable economy revolving around cotton production, supplemented by cattle and oil. Roughly 320,000 acres (55 percent) of the land area is used to grow cotton, which produces 90 percent of the agricultural income. The remaining 10 percent comes from cattle, hog, sorghum, wheat, and sunflower production. Irrigated land totals about 50,000 acres, but by the early 1980s some irrigated farms were running out of water.
