Garza County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas southeast of Lubbock. As of the 2010 census, its population was 6,461. Its county seat is Post. Garza is named for a pioneer Bexar County family, as it was once a part of that county.

A leading civic figure in Garza County was until his death in 2011 Giles McCrary, a rancher, oil developer, investor, and art collector. McCrary's OS Ranch Museum is a popular attraction in the county seat of Post, which has made an extended effort to attract tourism.

Republican Drew Springer, Jr., a businessman from Muenster in Cooke County, has since January 2013 represented Garza County in the Texas House of Representatives.
