Littlefield, Texas

Named for George Washington Littlefield, cattle baron and philanthropist who bought and developed southern Yellowhouse Division of famed XIT Ranch, the townsite of Littlefield was first surveyed in 1912 and became a station on the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railroad a year later.

Littlefield is now a banking, commercial and manufacturing center, and the seat of Lamb County. More than 300,000 farm acres are irrigated for chief crops of cotton and grain midst large ranches and livestock feeding lots. A large textile mill converts enough West Texas cotton into denim each year to make 19 million blue jeans.

City park has picnicking and free overnight camping with hookups.
