The seat of Bailey County, the town was founded in a sparsely settled area of huge cattle ranches. Early in the 20th century the immense ranches began to break up, and farming was introduced to this area of the High Plains. The town, organized in 1926, was named for the muleshoe brand of a famous early ranch. Today, it is a center for marketing and shipping of High Plains agricultural products.
