Munday, TX :: 2014 Community of Achievement

munday-achievement-award

The community dates from 1893, when a store was built at the site. Originally known as as Maud, it was renamed for postmaster R.P. Munday when the first post office was established in 1894. In 1903, West Munday merchants – separated by a thousand yards from East Munday – moved their buildings to east. The Wichita Valley Railroad arrived in 1906, the same year that the community incorporated. With 968 residents in 1910, Munday was easily the largest town in Knox County. By 1950, the population reached 2,270. The population slowly decreased throughout the latter half of the twentieth century. Today it is a community with excellent public schools and a number of local amenities for residents and visitors to the community. Farming and ranching are the main industries. The Munday Industrial Development Corporation is eager to help in relocation, expansion and new business start-ups. Be sure to visit our little town on the prairie.

Haskell, TX :: All-Star TMCN Community

haskell-all-star2

Crossroads of the Texas Midwest on U.S. 277 & 380, this picturesque community is the hub of the Rolling Plains. Named for Charles Ready Haskell, a Revolutionary soldier who fell with Fannin at Goliad, the town was incorporated in 1858 and known as Willow Pond Springs and later as Rice Springs. Buffalo, Indians, and cowboys all used the springs as a watering hole. Wild mustangs roamed freely west of Haskell on the Wild Horse Knob prairie. Through the century, the town experienced both boom and bust cycles, but the indomitable spirit of the citizens always prevailed, and today Haskell is a thriving epicenter of commerce and retail trade. With low taxes, a landfill and a plentiful water supply, Haskell is a great place to live and raise a family. Nature tourism is also become a source of revenue for businesses and landowners. Whitetail deer, turkeys, quail, dove, geese and feral hogs are abundant.
