Introduction to Brownfield, Texas
Town promoters W. G. Hardin and A. F. Small arrived in Terry County and bought the county’s center from A. M. Brownfield. They began platting the land to increase the chance of the site becoming a county seat. The duo named the site after a well-known ranching family. Brownfield, which was incorporated in 1920, was a leader in agriculture and contributed greatly to the economic development of the Permian Basin in 1940.
