Crosby County was born Aug. 21, 1876 when the Nineteenth Legislature of Texas created Crosby Land District, drawn from existing Young and Bexar Counties. Stephen F. Crosby, Alabama native and three-term Commissioner of the General Land Office, was the namesake.
After the organization of the county and the election of officers a tier of nine near-by counties were attached to Crosby for legal and judicial purposes with Estacado as the county seat. The original Crosby County Land District consisted of and included the following counties:
[Bailey] [Lamb] [Hale] [Floyd ] [ Motley ]
[Cochran ] [Hockley] [Lubbock] [Crosby] [ Dickens]
Neighboring Counties South of Crosby:
[Lynn ] [Garza ] [Kent]
Thought to Ponder:
"Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not."
