It's always "everything is bigger in Texas," right? But what about smaller? After all we, just like every other state, have a smallest town. And that's right, y'all. In Texas, you guessed it, we've got one of the smallest towns in the entire country... Cause we win at everything... even being smaller.

Outside of the major metros of the Lone Star State are hundreds of towns, many barely towns. Some a block big and home to a family or two. West Texas is dotted with these tiny whistle-stops. In fact as of May 2022, the 1,221 active Texas municipalities include 970 cities, 228 towns, and 23 villages.

But there is one municipality, not far from the Texas-Mexico border, that is officially Texas' smallest town. But before we get to it, let's show some love to a few more tiny dusty boroughs.
