Street Map
        Hugoton is the county seat of Stevens [SV] county.  It's in flat high plains country made prosperous by natural gas and agricultural production.  Downtown Hugoton and the local schools reflect that prosperity.  There's an amusing sculpture of two cowboys located on Main Street.

        In 1888, Governor John Martin had to send two National Guard companies to stop the violence of the bitter Hugoton/Woodsdale "county seat" war.  See Faded Dreams for more about this bloody little struggle.
