Henrietta Real Estate
Henrietta is one of the oldest settled towns in north central Texas. It sits at the crossroads of U.S. Highway 287, U.S. Highway 82, State Highway 148, and Farm to Market Road 1197 in north central Clay County. Henrietta is the county seat of Clay county. In 2000, the population topped 3000 for the first time since the 1970 census. It remains a “bedroom community” for Wichita Falls today and the largest city in Clay County.
The play Texas shown at Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo, Texas is loosely based on the history of Henrietta. The 1995 movie The Stars Fell on Henrietta, produced by Clint Eastwood and David Valdez, and starring Robert Duvall, Brian Dennehy and Billy Bob Thornton, depicts the Texas oil rush of the 1930s, and is set in Henrietta.
