    Erath county

    <<<Does anyone know how many acres Erath County has? >>>

    "ERATH COUNTY. Erath County was marked off from Bosque and Coryell counties in 1856 and named for George B. Erath,qv one of the original surveyors of the area. The center of the county is near Stephenville, eighty miles southwest of Dallas (at 32�10' N, 98�15' W). The county comprises 1,983 square miles and is divided into two distinct regions. The Western Cross Timbers, dominated by such hardwoods as post oak and a soil surface of sandy and red clay, crosses the northwestern two-thirds of the county, while the Grand Prairie, with dark limy soils originally covered with little bluestem but now dotted with live oak groves, crosses the southeastern one-third. The northern part of the county, where Cretaceous sediment has eroded, is noted for deposits of bituminous coal, fireclay, oil, and natural gas. The sand of the southern part is of glass-making quality. The animal life of Erath County includes badgers, civet cats, grey foxes, minks, wolves, mockingbirds, woodpeckers, and quail. The county's altitude ranges from 900 to 1,750 feet; the rainfall averages twenty-nine inches a year; the average temperature ranges from a low of 34� F during January to 96� in July, and the growing season lasts 238 days. The two major streams, the Paluxy and Bosque rivers, are tributaries of the Brazos. Transportation in Erath County is provided by Interstate Highway 20, which crosses the northwest corner, and U.S. highways 67, 281 and 377."

    So, 1983 X 640 = 1,269,120 acres. Voila. That took about ten seconds of research.
