Moore County is north of Amarillo in the Panhandle. The county was created in 1876 and organized in 1892. It's named for Edwin Ward Moore (18101865), the commander of the Republic of Texas Navy. The county seat is Dumas, named for Louis Dumas (18561923) who headed the Panhandle Townsite Company, which laid out the town.
