 Brief History from wikipedia:

 Haskell County was organized on July 1, 1887, by J.E. Marlow; C. H. Huntington; Joe Comes; and A. T. Collins. It was
 named for Dudley C. Haskell of Lawrence, a former military man who died while serving the state as a Congressman in
 1883, and contains the cities of Satanta and Sublette.

 In 1913 the Santa Fe Railroad was built through Haskell County, bypassing the old county seat of Santa Fe relegating it to a
 ghost town. The town was divided and moved to the two present sites of Sublette and Satanta. There are 11 homes in Sublette,
 as well as a few in Satanta, that were moved from the town of Santa Fe. The railroad and the development of oil and gas fields
 in the 1930s, and the locating of many deep wells for irrigation significantly improved the economy of the area helping
 overcome the "dust bowl" of that period. Haskell County was one of the hardest hit counties in the Midwest during the
 drought of 1930-1937.
