The town was founded in 1901 at the junction of two railroads. Dalhart also is known as the headquarters of the famous XIT Ranch - more than 3 million acres were sold by the state to pay for the Texas State Capitol building in Austin. The city was first called Twist, the designation of a railroad section. It was then called Denrock, combining the railroad names, before finally being named Dalhart, a syllabic combination of two counties (Dallam and Hartley) in which the town lies. It is the Dallam County seat and a shipping point for cattle and agricultural products. Dalhart is a stop on the Quanah Parker Trail - as part of the Texas Plains Trail Region. www.quanahparkertrail.com.
