“Situated in the fertile Blackland prairie of Northeast Texas, Kaufman County was home to Cherokee and Caddo Indians when settlers arrived in 1840 and established a community that became known as Kingsboro. In 1848, Kaufman County was carved out of Henderson County and named in honor of David Spangler Kaufman, a member of the Texas Legislature and the United States Congress; three years later, the settlement of Kingsboro became the county seat and took the new name of Kaufman,” read Rep. Keith Bell’s resolution written for Kaufman County Day.
Between Feb. 4 and Feb. 6, residents of Kaufman County spent time at the Texas State Capitol hearing from their legislators on important developments, advocating for their legislative priorities, and networking with other residents of the county.
