The Lipscomb County seat, near the Texas-Oklahoma border, was founded in 1868 by J.W. Arthur in anticipation of the coming railroad. Today, it functions as the county's center for farming and ranching along with oil and gas explorations.
A favorite spot for birders and photographers, the city is surrounded by the Canadian Breaks Loop portion of the Panhandle Plains Wildlife Trail. www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild/wildlife/wildlife-trails.
