Carson County Information
The county was settled in 1886 and the population estimated at 6,182 as of the 2010 census. The county seat is Panhandle, and it is also the largest community. The total area of the county is 924 square miles. It is named for Samuel Price Carson, the first secretary of state of the Republic of Texas.

White Deer in 1909 became home to Polish Catholic immigrants, who had first settled Panna Maria in Karnes County before migrating to Carson County.

Experimental drilling by Gulf Oil Corporation led to the county’s, and the Panhandle’s, first oil and gas production in late 1921. Borger field was discovered in 1925, sparking much oil exploration and production of the Panhandle area. By the end of 2000 more than 178,398,900 barrels of petroleum had been produced from county lands.

In September 1942 the Pantex Ordnance Plant was built on 16,076 acres of southwestern Carson County land, to pack and load shells and bombs in support of the World War II effort. Operations ceased August 1945, and in 1949 the site was sold to Texas Tech University at Amarillo for agricultural experimentation. Pantex reopened in 1951 as a nuclear weapons assembly plant. In 1960, Pantex began high explosives development in support of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. Pantex has a long-term mission to safely and securely maintain the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile and dismantle weapons retired by the military.
