The Seat of Hale County, Plainview was founded in 1887 and named for its magnificent view of the plains. It is the center of a huge, shallow underground water belt, so the city and county have an abundant water supply. Recreational facilities include an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, swimming pools and city parks. Hunters find abundant pheasant during that season. Excellent antique shopping is available in the historic downtown area. It is the home of Wayland Baptist University
Events include the KKYN/Bar None Rodeo and Fiesta Campesina in July; Cinco De Mayo in May, Cowboy Days held the second Saturday in September; and Diez y Seis in September.
