CITY OF HEADLAND 150: Celebrating the City of Headland’s Sesquicentennial
150 logo for site
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
James Joshua Head (1839–1927) founded Headland in 1871 as "Head's Land". He patented land, plotted the town and built his home. The post office opened, as "Headland", on October 10, 1871 and established Headland as an official community. The city was incorporated later in 1884. This year marks the 150th Anniversary or the Sesquincentennial of our city. 

 

We will be celebrating our anniversary with events and activities and encourage our community to participate. The City of Headland will be organizing an Ag Parade to celebrate our rich agricultural heritage the afternoon of July 4th before our Annual Fireworks Display in Douglas Park. Mark your calendars to celebrate our city and country this Summer.
