"A place generations call Home"

History of Crosby County

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.
