Located in Reeves County, Verhalen was originally named Verhalen Switch by the Pecos valley Southern Railroad. It was named for Ray P. Verhalen, one of the pioneer farmers of Reeves County. Alfalfa was a popular crop at that time in the area. After World War II, it was found that under-ground water was abundant. Cotton then became a major industry for the area. Farmers began moving away because of the high cost of production and low price of cotton. The Kerley Gins are the only cotton gins still in operation in Reeves County in 2006. Today all that is left of the town is remnants of a general store and an active Verhalen community center.
