Littlefield History

Littlefield was named after rancher George W. Littlefield, who divided his ranch to form a land company after surveys indicated that a railroad line from Santa Fe to Texico would pass through his land. The town became a station for the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway in 1913. It was incorporated in 1924 and quickly developed as cottonseed oil mills, grain elevators, and irrigated farms were built. In 1935, Littlefield received its own hospital and clinic.
