Quiet farming town full of beautiful, kind, hardworking families. Resources are limited, so most travel to nearby cities for their needs. However I wouldn't change the character (or the wildlife) for anything!

I really like Hawley, TX due to the fact it’s small, I live out in the country and you don’t have to worry about much of nothing. Everyone is pretty friendly and the likes area I live in all the neighbors look out for each other.
Change for Hawley, it would be nice to have 1 fast food place to grab a bite to eat & possibly a public pool for kids & adults to go to.
It is a small town grew up here and know every nearly. Have a lot of close friends and it has 2 small cafes and the high school and a dollar store and 2 gas stations so defiantly a small town and close town. My Mom works in Anson a small town close by and my Dad works in Abilene which is a bigger town but still not the size of Dallas or Ft Worth. We are located just off Interstate 20 in Texas so not far to travel to watch the Texas Rangers or Dallas Cowboys play ball. We have 3 colleges in Abilene and I am doing my best to graduate. I spent 3 years in Jr college trying to get a degree and just didn’t have teachers available sontransfered to McMurray now trying to get finished
