Rains County, TX

On the upper reaches of the Sabine River in northeast Texas sits Rains County. Emory, the county seat and the largest town, is centrally located in the middle of the county and is about 64 miles east of Dallas. With only 258.8 square miles to the county, it is one of the smallest counties in the state. More than 10 percent of the county sits under water since the construction of Lake Tawakoni and the Lake Fork Reservoir.

Early Inhabitants of Rains County

James H. Hooker of Tennessee is believed to be the first American of European descent to colonize the territory. In the 1840s Hooker arrived and settled in what is now southwest Rains County and established Hooker’s Mill on the Sabine River. The site of the mill coincides with that of the Tawakoni-Yscani village but there was no evidence of Indians still living there. Hooker’s homestead was originally in what was considered Hunt County, but it is now submerged by Lake Tawakoni.

The first settlers of the area found it to be covered by dense forest with thick cane brakes in the streams and river bottoms. From the beginning, cotton was the first principal cash crop.  One of the early pioneers of the area, Emory Rains, served in the Congress of the Republic of Texas, and in 1866 Rains lobbied for the bill that established Rains County. It was approved on June 9, 1870 and the bulk of the county of was formed out of Wood County.

Modern Rains County

Agriculture is the pillar of the Rains County economy with the majority of the farms specializing in beef cattle, hay and sweet potatoes. Since the establishment of Rains County the population has continued to grow, and it is now home to more than 11,000 people.  Rains County offers an abundance of watercourses including Elm, Cedar, Garrett, Woodbury, Brushy, Sandy, Turkey, Bull and Bear creeks in addition to the Sabine River, Lake Fork and Lake Tawakoni.
