Kinder, four miles south of Quitaque in southeastern Briscoe County, was named for Judge L. S. Kinder, the railroad entrepreneur who led the movement to organize the Amarillo, Plainview and Southern Railroad in 1903. Served by a flag stop and spur on the Fort Worth and Denver line, with which the judge worked, Kinder receives its mail by rural delivery from Quitaque.
