Posey is a small rural community located on the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe lines. The town is 11 miles southeast of Lubbock in southeastern Lubbock County. Early inhabitants named the community Posey for the family of Walter Samson Posey, who assisted in the construction of the railway's right-of-way. From 1952 to 1973, there were 120 people reported. The population increased to 125 from 1974 to 1992.


According to the Handbook of Texas, the establishment of Posey took place in 1936. It had then a population of 25 and 3 businesses. Posey had a population of 70 people by the 1940s. By this time, a church, a school, a grain elevator, and two companies existed. The existing school was later combined with those of Slaton in the 1960s. These days, there is a functioning cotton gin, a Lutheran church, and a few homes scattered throughout. Because of this, Posey has been classified as a "dispersed rural community."

Do you have a home with appliances that are not equipped for cold weather?
We all know that electricity is essential. But we don't always appreciate just how much of an impact it has on our lives until the lights go out or if there's a storm.

Since most appliances and other electrical devices run on electricity, a powerless home can be a highly disadvantageous situation. Food spoils without refrigeration. You'll be unable to use your computer for work or school. You can't even work up a sweat playing games on your PS3! Don't let your family face such a situation. This only creates unnecessary stress on your part.
