Coldwater, the county seat of Comanche county, is situated a little northwest of the center of the county, and is one of the most important towns on the Wichita & Englewood division of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway system. It has an elevation of 2,089 feet and is beautifully located in the valley of Cavalry creek, a tributary of the Arkansas river. Coldwater was established as the county seat soon after the county was organized, and in the matter of growth it has had its ups and downs." The census of 1890 showed a population of 480, which had dwindled to 263 in 1900. (For the cause of this decline see Comanche County.) Then came a turn for the better, and in 1910 the population was 684. The improvement during these latter years is of a permanent character. Coldwater has 2 banks, 3 grain elevators, 2 weekly newspapers (the Talisman and the Western Star), an international money order postoffice, express, telegraph and telephone facilties, and is the commercial center for a large and prosperous agricultural district.
