Community Coverage: Olton Was The First County Seat in Lamb County

As the first town in Lamb County, Olton became the county seat in 1908.

A courthouse was built but burned down in 1922. It was rebuilt in 1923 but in 1946 after several years of trying, Littlefield won an election and to this day holds the seat for Lamb County.

A historical marker now stands where the courthouse once stood in Olton.
