History & History Related Items

Toyah history:

Toyah is an Indian word that means flowing water. It is the oldest townsite in Reeves County. W.T. Youngblood and family were the first settlers here. They began selling general merchandise to local ranchers. He also began a permanent business site by building a store.

The railroad came through here in 1881 with a stagecoach route connecting with Fort Stockton later that year. For a short time, the community prospered as a cattle shipping point, but the success was shortlived as shipping moved to Toyahvale, a community closer to the ranches. Few businesses survive today. Most of the historic buildings have either been torn down or were destroyed by tornados or storms.

This page has some history plus lots of old pictures of Toyah, including some of buildings now destroyed or torn down.
