The county of Rains, located in the north-eastern region of the Texas state, was founded in 1870 and was named after Emory Rains, a legislator of the Texas state. It is one of the smallest counties in the state, and more than ten percent of its land has been underwater since the establishment of the Lake Fork Reservoir and Lake Tawakoni. Hence, this county largely depends on its farming and ranching industries, along with some manufacturing trades; beef, horses, dairy cattle, hay, small grains, and vegetables were its major agricultural products. Due to its location, you can also find numerous springs in this county. An annual bass fishing and golf tournament are also being celebrated every September. Furthermore, Greek, Mediterranean, French, Mexican, southern and traditional American cuisines are among the food specialties that are being served in this county.
