Lynn County Courthouse, Tahoka, 2016

One hundred residents gathered at Tahoka Lake in 1902 and voted to organize Lynn County and a county seat named Tahoka, a Native American word for “fresh water.” Today, Tahoka’s square boasts the 1916 Classical-Revival style Lynn County Courthouse designed by W. R. Rice, restored in 2019. This building, maintaining its original architectural integrity, has earned National Register and State Archeological Landmark designations.
