GOMEZ, TEXAS . Gomez is on U.S. highways 82 and 380 forty-five miles southwest of Lubbock in west central Terry County. In 1902 J. F. Blankenship, Sam P. Ford, and a Mr. Pool started the town, the first settlement in Terry County. Blankenship surveyed the townsite. The men were informed-incorrectly, it was later discovered-that the land they had bought was at the center of the county. A post office opened in 1903 with Mrs. Tom Bess as postmistress. The name of the town was suggested by Washington postal authorities in honor of Máximo Gómez, a Cuban general and patriot who had figured prominently in the recent Spanish-American War.
