one-half mile west to townsite of

First town in Bailey County. Promoted in 1907 by land company of Stevens A. Coldren (d. 1924). He had a townsite surveyed and named it for Patrick J. Hurley (1883-1963), New Mexico political leader. Company built general store, hotel and livery stable. Wide plowed furrows indicated future streets. In August 1907 a post office was established.

Settlers came in and a church and school were begun.

In 1913, however, the railroad bypassed town. Efforts to start "New Hurley"—on the rail line—failed. After Muleshoe became county seat, 1918, Hurley expired.
