About This Item

lovebugleather

This is one of a series of heart-shaped items obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs. They are named either for the places of their origin or for Texas Panhandle-South Plains towns with interesting names or histories.

Bovina is a city in Parmer County. The name derives from the noun/adjective bovine meaning of or about cows.  The population was 1,874 at the 2000 census. The site of present town was originally the Hay Hook Line Camp of the XIT, the famed ranch that received over 3,000,000 acres of state land in payment for building Texas State Capitol. When the railroad came to the area, it became the shipping point for XIT livestock. A community grew out of this activity. Train crews called the place "Bull Town", but the citizens chose the name "Bovina" when establishing the post office in 1899. During that period more cattle were shipped out of Bovina than any other place in Texas.
