About This Place
Ralls is an agricultural community in Crosby County, West Texas, United States, named after John Robinson Ralls, who, with the help of W.E. McLaughlin, laid out the townsite in July 1911. Ralls is surrounded by productive farm lands that primarily produce cotton and grains, with lesser amounts of soybean, sunflower, and vegetables.
Ralls is located on the level plains of the Llano Estacado between Lorenzo to the west and Crosbyton to the east. To the north of Ralls is the small community of Cone, Texas and further north is a narrow portion of Blanco Canyon, where the Spanish explorer Francisco Vázquez de Coronado and his army are believed to have camped in 1541. To the south of Ralls is the Caprock Escarpment which marks the break between the Llano Estacado and the rolling plains carved by the tributaries of the Brazos River.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.3 sq mi (3.4 km2), all of it land.
