Haskell is a slice of small-town living at its best! Here, you’ll find homes nestled next to cotton fields, a vibrant downtown square with family-owned retail shops where the owner knows you by name, quality schools, and a community spirit rooted in family values, goodwill, and the future.

Founded in 1885 and named in honor of Charles Ready Haskell, Haskell is the county seat of Haskell County, home to more than 3,300 residents, a center of commerce for several surrounding communities, and a delightful stop for Texas travelers.

Haskell is located 55 miles north of Abilene and 98 miles south of Wichita Falls at the intersection of U.S. Highways 277 & 380. It is about three hours west of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Talk about centrally located! If you can’t find what you need in Haskell, you don’t have to travel far.
