The GREAT Texas Land Rush!!

Texas Almanac Creates Adopt-A-County and Adopt-A-Town As Part of New Almanac for 2012-2013

DENTON, TEXAS - Offering Texans the unprecedented opportunity to stake a claim to their own special part of Texas, The Texas Almanac, a publication dubbed the Source for All Things Texan Since 1857, is launching the Great Land Rush program. Adopters will put their personal stamp on a Texas county or town and will have the added satisfaction of knowing they helped make this valuable resource, The Texas Almanac, available to Texans worldwide.

The Adopt-A-County and the Adopt-A-Town programs allow individuals and businesses to put their name on the Texas county or town of their choice. But just like the original Oklahoma land rush, it works on a first come first serve basis. If you have a special county or town in mind, stake your claim.

Here’s how it works. Select the county or town that you would like to adopt by visiting and click the “Find your county” or “Find your town” links. The county or town can represent you or your family and can be dedicated to a loved one or used to promote a business. Additionally, you will receive a certificate recognizing your adoption. There are print and online options for each county, though towns can be adopted online only.

Perhaps the best part of this particular land rush is that it is tax deductible, and all donations are used to support the Texas Almanac and the Texas State Historical Association.

Remarkably affordable, a donation of just $200 gets your name on the county of your choice, and only $15 gets you your own town. Contact Susan Manuel at or 940-369-5200 for more information.
