History

Loving County was created 26 February 1887 from Tom Green County, a new county that had been created in 1874, but was still attached to Reeves County for judicial purposes. In 1893, Loving County was organized and a new town, Mentone (12 miles north of present-day Mentone), selected as the county seat. Construction began on a courthouse, although it was never finished. Loving County was deorganized on 12 May 1897, and reattached to Reeves county. Loving County was reorganized in 1931, and the town of Ramsey (renamed Mentone) selected as the county seat. [2]
