Gail, Texas

Both the town and county are named for Gail Borden, Texas patriot, surveyor, editor, trustee of the Texas Baptist Education Society that founded Baylor University, inventor of condensed milk, and founder of Borden Foods.

Gail was first established as ranch supply point in 1891, and elected the county seat and only town in Borden County. Gail remains a cow town without a bank, theater, railroad, hotel, doctor, or lawyer. The courthouse is the one large building on main street.
