General County Information

County Seat: Hollis

Harmon County, part of the original disputed Greer County claimed by both Texas and the United States, was created by special election in 1909, and named for Judson C. Harmon, a governor of Ohio and later U.S. Secretary of State. Located in extreme southwestern Oklahoma, the county is known today as the "Irrigation Center of the Southwest." Hollis is the county seat. The economy of the county is based largely on farming and ranching, with two contributing industries -- Western Fibers Insulation Plant, manufacturing insulation from recycled paper, and Buck Creek "Honey" Mesquite Company, Inc., processing mesquite for use as a flavor enhancer for barbecued meats. Lake Hall provides fishing and recreational opportunities for the area.
