Roaring Springs

Roaring Springs, in Motley County, was named for a nearby Native American camp on the Tongue River with natural springs and a waterfall. The land was purchased by the Quanah, Acme and Pacific Railroad in 1912. When the railroad line reached the site in 1913, it was named Roaring Springs by the U.S. Post Office.
