Swisher County Information
As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 7,854. Its county seat is Tulia, and it is also the largest community. The county was established in 1890 and is a total area of 901 square miles. The county was named for James G. Swisher, a soldier of the Texas Revolution and signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence.

The Great Depression had a devastating effect on the county’s economy, somewhat relieved by road work. The stimulus of World War II demand and, particularly, the development of large-scale irrigation in the area, led to the revival of the county’s economy. The first successful extensive local use of underground water from the Ogallala Aquifer came in 1936. After World War II this activity increased dramatically; by the 1980s over 225,000 acres in Swisher County were irrigated. In 2002 the county had 578 farms and ranches covering 566,429 acres, 69 percent of which were devoted to crops and 30 percent to pasture.

The area code in use for this county is 806.
