Kaufman County

Since it was established in 1848, named for diplomat and U.S. congressman David Spangler Kaufman, and King’s Fort was renamed Kaufman and made the county three years later, this county has survived its share of hard times. During the Great Depression and World War II, farm values that had been key to the county’s economy plunged by more than 50 percent as the number of farms decreased by more than 1,800. Unemployment spiked more than 16 percent in 1940, and the number of county residents hits its lowest point of the 20th Century when fewer than 30,000 people called the county home in 1960.

However, the area eventually rebounded thanks to the growth of nearby Dallas. The county has been further served by its vicinity to important roadways like Interstate 20, U.S. Highway 80, U.S. Highway 175, Texas State Highway 34, Texas State Highway 205, and Texas State Highway 243.
