    History in a Pecan Shell

    The original name of Meadow had been Primrose. Primrose moved to a location 3 miles east of the present town to a place now referred to as “Old Meadow.” In 1917, the South Plains and Sante Fe Railroad ran a line from Lubbock
    to Seagraves. The town built a distinctive 12 foot square water tank in the middle of main street for the watering of horses or to allow residents to wade.

    The town was incorporated in 1926 and has continued a slow but steady growth since then. Meadow is Terry County’s “second city” with a population of 659.
