History

Seymour was founded by settlers from Oregon, who called the town Oregon City; it was originally located where the Western Trail crossed the Brazos River, which flows just south of the townsite. A post office was established in 1879, at which time the town's name was changed to honor local cowboy Seymour Munday, after whom nearby Munday was also named.

Commerce, a newspaper, a hotel, and the county courthouse all followed soon after, as did violence between cowboys and settlers. The town experienced two distinct economic booms: the first, short-lived, with the construction of the Wichita Valley rail line in 1880, and the second due to the discovery of oil in 1906. The population grew from 500 in 1884 to almost 3800 in 1950; it remained at about that level for more than thirty years, but has declined since to 2,740 in the 2010 census. Agribusiness, as well as some tourism from nearby Lake Kemp, has overtaken oil as the driving factor of the local economy. The Old Settlers Reunion and Rodeo has been held each July since 1896.

The town calls itself "the crossroads of North Texas" because it is located at the junction of five highways: U.S. highways 82, 277, 183 and283, as well as State Highway 114.

The Reptiliomorpha order Seymouriamorpha and genus Seymouria are named after this city. The last seymouriamorph became extinct by the end of the Permian period.

On August 12, 1936, the temperature at Seymour reached 120 °F (49 °C), the highest temperature ever recorded in the state of Texas.

The Seymour Division of La Escalera Ranch is located north of Seymour in Baylor County and consists of 34,000 contiguous acres (120 km²) in Baylor County and Archer County. Previously known as Circle Bar Ranch, La Escalera Limited Partnership purchased the ranch from the Claude Cowan Sr. Trust in January 2005. La Escalera partner Jo Lyda Granberg and husband K. G. Granberg manage the cow-and-calf operation. The ranch is known for its reputation herd of Black Angus cattle and its abundant wildlife, including white-tailed deer, white-winged dove, mourning dove, Northern bobwhite quail, Rio Grande wild turkey and feral pig.

On Feb 13 2015 Seymour Texas was listed on the front page of popular social media site reddit.com.
