Wells is at the intersection of Farms roads 213 and 3112 four miles north of the Dawson county line and six miles west of U.S. Highway 87 in southwestern Lynn County. Its name comes from the W. D. Wells family, who gave land for the school and the community site. Though it began to develop before World War I and started a school in 1917, the community did not grow much over the years. In 1949 Wells had a school, three businesses including a gin, and a population of forty-five. By 1974 only a cotton gin remained.
