Lahey is on U.S. Highway 62/385 and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe line, six miles southwest of Brownfield in central Terry County. The farming community, including a store and a school, was established on the railroad in the early 1900s and named for Thomas H. Lahey, a supporter of the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway. A post office was granted to the community in 1926 with Edward J. Powell as postmaster. In 1936 Lahey reported a post office, a business, and a population of fifteen. Postal service was moved to Brownfield in 1938. A store, a rural school, and a railroad switch were functioning at Lahey into the early 1950s. The community was still shown on the 1984 county highway map.
