With a great location just twenty-nine miles south of Plainview and eighteen miles north of Lubbock, the Hale County community of Abernathy, Texas, sits on U.S. Highway 87 and Interstate Highway 27. This well-established community is in the 806 area code and the 79311 zip code of the Texas Panhandle and was founded in 1909 after the expansion of the Santa Fe Railroad to connect Lubbock to Plainview. The town was named after one of its three founders, M. G. Abernathy. By 1910 Abernathy had its own post office and just four years later it boasted a bank, several stores, and its population was roughly three hundred residents.

In 1924 Abernathy was incorporated and it had one thousand, five hundred residents by 1926, in addition to having established itself as a grain and cotton hub. There was another boom in Abernathy when oil was discovered nearby in 1946, and by the early 1950s, the town had almost two thousand residents and roughly sixty-five businesses.
