Information about Lamesa: (Original and from Wikipedia.org, the city of Lamesa website, and the Lamesa Chamber of Commerce.):
Lamesa, TX is located in northwestern Texas in the Llano Estacado region, more commonly referred to as the South Plains. The city is the county seat of Dawson County and had a population of 9,422 in the 2010 census. The name Lamesa comes from the Spanish words “la mesa”, meaning “the table”, which is a reference to the flat plains of the Llano Estacado. A. L. Wasson, who was a member of the first town committee, suggested La Mesa and Lamesa as possible names for the new community. He preferred The Spanish version but the committee voted in favor of Lamesa. Rail service to Lamesa began in 1910. The City of Lamesa was incorporated in 1917. Originally there were 2 communities in the area: Lamesa and Chicago. In 1905 an election was held to pick the new county seat for Dawson County, and Lamesa won by 5 votes.
