COUNTY LINE, TX (COCHRAN COUNTY)

COUNTY LINE, TEXAS (Cochran County). County Line, a settlement in the northeast corner of Cochran County, was named for its location near the Cochran-Hockley county line. The community developed around the Union Sunday School that was established there in 1935. The County Line Baptist Church was organized in 1945, and a church building was constructed soon thereafter. In 1965 the community consisted of a gin, a store, and a few residences.
