Briscoe County was organized in 1892, and has Silverton as the county seat. The county was named after Andrew Briscoe, one of the soldiers in the Texas Revolution. Agriculture is its primary source of revenue, with its residents cultivating crops such as cotton, wheat, sorghum, peanuts, and hay. Recreation is mostly in the form of scenic drives and nature views at the Mackenzie Reservoir and Caprock Canyons State Park, as well as hunting and fishing. People can also look forward to the county’s annual events like the Briscoe County Celebration and Bison Music Festival.
