Named after Richard Andrews, the first man to have died in the war for the independence of Texas in 1835, the Andrews County was signed into existence in 1876. Andrews is home to more than 300 oilfields and is the third in the state for oil production, that it even pushed to be declared the oilfield capital of Texas. Aside from oil, cotton, sorghum as well as other grains, corn and hay are being grown in the area. With the county experiencing an average of 316 days of sunshine per year and a median temperature of 63 degrees Fahrenheit, it is a great place to spend time outdoors in the community parks, as well as the golf course, which ranks as one of the best and least expensive in West Texas.
