Welcome to Cotton County. I am Jeff Smith, the County Coordinator for Cotton County.

Kiowa, Comanche, and Apache Reservation was the last Indian land opening.  Comanche County was one of the 3 counties later organized from this land. In 1906, the western part of the county known as "Big Pasture" was opened and its half million acres sold in 160 acres tracts to the highest bidder.

Citizens of 13 townships and the parts of 13 other townships in southern Comanche County voted to organize a new county in this area on August 22, 1912. The county was named "Cotton County" and Walters was later chosen as the county seat. Cotton County became the 77th county.
