Lamb County exists in north Texas, just down from the Texas Panhandle. The county is northwest of Lubbock, Texas. The population of the county is nearly 14,000 people and the total area is 1,020 square miles. The county was named after a soldier who died during the Battle of San Jacinto and the county seat is Littlefield.
Lamb County is arguably most famous for being the birthplace of iconic country music star Waylong Jennings. Jennings went on to work with The Highwaymen which also included legends Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristopherson. He was instrumental in creating the image of outlaw country and his upbringing continues to get celebrated in Lamb County.
The territory was created in 1876 from portions of Bexar County. Lamb County is connected to seven other counties in Texas. These include Castro County and Parmer County (to the north), Hockley County, Lubbock County, and Cochran County (to the south), Hale County (to the east), and Bailey County (to the west).
Lamb County is serviced by three main thoroughfares including U.S. Highway 70 (which travels east and west through the northern boundary), U.S. Highway 84 (angled route through Littlefield), and U.S. Highway 385 (primary north and south highway also runs through Littlefield). Along with three primary highways the Littlefield Municipal Airport is also in operation.
Littlefield (population 6,375) is the largest community in Lamb County at the critical junction of U.S. Highway 385 and U.S. Highway 84. Olton is the second biggest town with a population of 2,215. Earth (population 1,065) and Sudan (population 1,040) are the third and fourth biggest, respectfully. Amherst (population 720) is much smaller along with tiny Springlake (population 110) and Spade (population 75).
Littlefield is situated in the lower third of the square territory. Littlefield is well known for being a rich supplier of cotton. It exists on the Llano Estacado and also features a large denim-manufacturing plant that is owned by American Cotton Growers. The town is also home to the Bill W. Clayton Detention Center, a medium-security facility named after a former Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives. On a lighter note, Littlefield is home to the Triple Arrow Ranch. It is a historical site that attracts visitors.
The economy of Littlefield is diverse considering its rural landscape. As previously mentioned, cotton is the largest contributor to the local economy. The American Cotton Growers Denim Textile Plant is the largest employer in Lamb County. It is also the headquarters of Lowe’s Market, a grocery store chain for the American Southwest. The county also does well off tourism. There is a Waylon Jennings Boulevard that attracts fans from all over the country.
Bull Lake is a popular outdoor recreation area that exists a few miles west of Littlefield. Camping and fish are the highlights. Lamb County was also home to the world’s tallest windmill which was reportedly below the Yellow Houses Bluff in the early 20th century before being blown over from high winds. Public education in the county is supported primarily through the Littlefield Independent School District. There is also a branch of South Plains College to continue higher learning within Lamb County.
