Eastland’s History

The founding father of Eastland Title was Herman Eastland, Sr.  who gathered recorded data from real property records at the state capitol in Austin, Texas and in the Hill County  records  during the mid late 1800’s to 1931.  Herman Eastland, Jr. joined his father in 1919 and managed the company until 1953.   The next in line to assume the roll of owner and keeper of the records was  Harold Eastland who reigned until 1996, at which time his daughter-in-law, Tammy Eastland, joined the company as manager until 1998 when the company was sold.

Phil Adams, an attorney from Gainesville, Texas, purchased the title company in July 1998, with Donna Hubbard becoming manager.  In 2001 the company again changed hands, with Donna Hubbard’s purchase.

Eastland has evolved from a sovereign card index plant to an electronically indexed plant database.  By utilizing the most current and innovative title plant indexing program and escrow closing program, it has enabled Eastland to conduct our business with the utmost efficiency.  Security of our data is a very high priority and we regularly evaluate the software and hardware used to ensure your data is safe and secure.  Customer service and quality of product is our priority!
