Anson, Texas

The seat of Jones County was founded in 1881 and named for Dr. Anson Jones, the last president of the Republic of Texas. The area is one of richest farming areas in Texas; cotton production can be observed from field to gin. Other primary crops include wheat, sorghum, hay, and oats. The cattle, oil, and gas extraction, and gypsum products add to the economy.

Each December since 1885, The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball is held in Pioneer Hall. Popularized by Michael Martin Murphey’s musical rendition of the “The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball,” a poem honoring ranchmen of Texas written in 1890 by William Lawrence (Larry) Chittenden after attending one of the balls. Check out the “Cowboy Dance” art by Jenne Magafan in the U.S. Post Office. It’s one of the best preserved Post Office murals authorized by the section of Fine Arts within the Treasury Dept. during Franklin Roosevelt’s administration.
