PATRICIA, TEXAS . Patricia, at the junction of State Highway 349 and Farm Road 703, twelve miles southeast of Lamesa in southwestern Dawson County, was established in 1923 as the headquarters of the Birge-Forbes Land Company of Sherman, Texas, which owned eight leagues of Dawson County land. Matthew C. Lindsey , agent for the company and local historian, sold tracts to farmers, and the company built a gin. A post office was established in 1923 after the original name, Natalie, was changed to Patricia, perhaps for Patricia Hopkins, granddaughter of a company owner. In 1948 the town had seven businesses and sixty people. The population remained at sixty in 1980 through 2000. By 1980 the post office had closed.
