At the center of Hale County, this town resulted from the compromise of two rival villages, Hale City and Epworth, that united in 1893. Buildings from both were moved to new town site. Originally supplying large ranches, the town became center of intensive farming as irrigation developed in 20th century. In the county, more than 400,000 irrigated acres produce cotton, grain sorghum, wheat, sunflowers, sugar beets and table vegetables. Ten large outdoor murals—displayed on buildings throughout the city—historically depict life in Hale Center.
