About Freestone County

Its county seat is Fairfield. The county was created in 1850 and organized the next year. Archeological evidence indicates that the area that is now Freestone County was inhabited from the late Holocene era to the arrival of the Spanish. In the early twenty-first century natural gas, mining, quarries, various manufacturing concerns, and agribusiness were the key elements of the local economy. Beef cattle, hay, fruits, vegetables, melons, pecans, and corn are currently the chief agricultural products. Lake Fairfield, in the north central part of the county, provides recreation for residents and visitors, and many historic sites are preserved throughout the county. Blues artist Blind Lemon Jefferson was born in Coutchman and buried in Wortham.
