Facts about Seagraves, Texas
Seagraves is a city in Gaines County, Texas, United States. The population was 2,417 at the 2010 census.
A post office at the home of S.J. Blythe occupied the area known as Blythe, Texas. In 1917 the Santa Fe railroad moved into the vicinity, but the rail company ran into a problem. Santa Fe already had one town by the name located in Blythe, California. The company decided to change the name of this new location after Charles L. Seagraves, an employee who worked as a traveling agent and was favored by local residents. The Spearman Land Company building was the first building to be erected and the Higginbotham Bartlett Lumber Company followed shortly there after. Seagraves grew rapidly as a town and in 1928 suffered a fire that burned a major portion of the business section. The only building left standing was the Seagraves Motor Company, which led to the rebuilding of modern brick buildings, many of which remain today.
