Hurlwood is on Highway 114 and the Santa Fe Railroad. It's 19 km west of Lubbock, near the Hockley County Line. The town's population fell from 185 to 115 between 1960 and 2000. The name Hurlwood comes from the names of two early settlers Claude B. Hurlbut and W. M. Wood.
Early records show that the foundation of Hurlwood took place in 1924 around a railway junction. The Hurlwood Rural High School District was established in 1935 after the merger of three rural schools. In 1940, the population was small, numbering only fifty persons. An aviation training school, the Reese Air Force Base (then known as Lubbock Army Air Field), was constructed there during World War II.
