Falls County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 17,866. The county seat is Marlin. It is named for the original 10 foot tall waterfall on the Brazos River, which existed until the river changed course during a storm in 1866. The present falls can be found two miles north east of the original falls at the Falls On The Brazos Park, a campsite located only a few miles out of Marlin on Farm to Market Road 712. With a large portion of its economy based around agriculture, Falls County is sixth among 254 Texas counties in corn production.
