The Lamb County seat, this town is named for George Washington Littlefield, cattle baron and philanthropist who bought and developed the southern Yellowhouse Division of the famed XIT Ranch. The town site was surveyed in 1912 and became a station on the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railroad a year later. It is now a banking, commercial and manufacturing center. A large textile mill converts West Texas cotton into denim for blue jeans.
City parks offer picnicking and a free RV park.
