Plainview, Texas

As the seat of Hale County, Plainview was founded in 1887 and named for the magnificent view of the plains. Lying in the center of a huge, shallow underground water belt, Plainview and the county have an abundant water supply resulting in being a leader in grain and cotton production. Oil and gas also contribute to area economy. Plainview is the home of Wayland Baptist University.

There is excellent antique shopping with 12 locations in the historic downtown area. Don't miss "Cattle Drive," the display of more than 45 fiberglass cows throughout the city. Colorfully decorated and displayed in city parks as well as in front of businesses, these cows can be viewed 24 hours a day (not all displays are lighted for night viewing). The project was created to promote Cowboys Days, celebrated the second Saturday in September. Annual events include the KKYN/Bar None Rodeo and Fiesta Campesina in July; Cinco De Mayo in May; and Diez Y Seis in September.

Recreational facilities include an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, swimming pools and city parks. Hunters find abundant pheasant during the season.
