Lazbuddie

Lazbuddie, at the junction of Farm roads 145 and 1172 in southeastern Parmer County, had its beginning in 1902, when Thomas Kelly purchased the Capitol Syndicate's Red Tower Camp, comprising 55,136 acres (see XIT RANCH). From it he developed the Star Ranch, on which directions and locations were given according to the names of thirty windmills scattered over the vast acreage. After a few years Kelly placed some of this land on the market for homesteaders, and in 1907 a school was established on the property.
