Diamond M Refinery Area

Diamond was not a town, but rather a group of oilfield buildings and houses located near a Diamond M refinery in southwest Scurry County. The refinery, originally owned by the Lyon Oil Company, in the mid-1970s was operating within the Diamond M oilfield, named for the nearby Diamond M Ranch. Although the oil area remains, no Diamond community appeared on 1980 county maps.
