Welcome To The City of Hackberry
In 1983 Hackberry was incorporated. During that time we had poor roads, poor water supply and failing septic systems through out the city. In 1987 the first official Hackberry City Hall was constructed by city leaders and citizens. The materials and labor were donated by Danny and Jean Buckalew, Brenda Lewallen, Arlene Ranegar, Jerry Davis, Bill Quakenbush, Ike Turner, Andy and Nancy Shores, Donna Draper, Greg and Gracie Mattocks, Gene Brown, Teri Brouillette, Pat Daniels, and many others that City records do not reflect.
Our second City Hall was purchased in 1994. The City of Hackberry moved into their new City Hall May 2012. As of current, we have seen a new water system, new sewer systems, road improvements and much more. We now supply water and sewer to over 1000 customers. The City plans to have all the roads resurfaced in the near future.
As the City grows, there will be more improvements to our community with new homes, roads, and upgrades to the water system and wastewater plant. So come join the City of Hackberry as we continue to flourish and grow.
est. population inside City limits as of 2013: 998

Water lawns and gardens carefully so water does not stand for several days.
Screen rain barrels and openings to water tanks or cisterns.
Treat front and back door areas of homes with residual insecticides if mosquitoes are abundant nearby.
If mosquito problems persist, consider pesticide applications for vegetation around the home.
Measures for Individuals to Protect Themselves from Mosquito Bites:
