Parker County Real Estate
Parker County encompasses 902 square miles. The area contained various types of soil, rivers and mineral resources. Agriculture was prevalent during early habitation of the county. The most popular crop productions included cotton, corn, wheat, cows and pigs. All of these dramatically decreased during the Great Depression so to adapt and make use of the land farmers diversified their crops. Vegetables, livestock, peanuts and hay became the county’s fundamental products. During the 1960s Interstate 20 was built attracting new residents and convenient access to Fort Worth which many commuted for work. Meanwhile, oil production and the electricity industry started to rise. Now in the twenty first century agribusiness and an assortment of manufacturing are Parker County’s primary industries.
This area provides a great rural setting for those that love living countryside. It is adjacent to Fort Worth so access to the city and commuting is still an option.
