Truman Lamar is known as the place where Wyatt Earp had his first job as the city's local constable in the 1870's. The city's economy is boosted by the presence of two factories; one of which manufatures ready to assemble furniture and the other manufactures custom store fixtures and conducts a large retail business. Lamar's free fair is held each August with a carnival featuring adult and children's rides, livestock shows, Kiddy and Rotary Parades, car shows, dances and the annual Lamar Queen contest.
