About Amarillo, TX From the Web…
“Part of the Great Plains and the largest city in the Texas Panhandle, Amarillo had its beginnings in 1887, when the Fort Worth-Denver City railroad was constructed across the Texas Panhandle. Originally named Oneida, the town was platted in April 1887 by J.I. Berry; who soon renamed the town Amarillo (the Spanish word for yellow), after it was voted the county seat of Potter County in August 1887. In 1913, Amarillo became the first city in Texas and only the fifth in the nation to adopt the Commission-Manager form of government. Industry in Amarillo began with railroading, cattle and merchandising. Amarillo grew rapidly in 1925, stimulated by money derived from oil, gas and wheat expansion.”
“Amarillo and the surrounding Panhandle area are a unique blend of two American eras. There are the working ranches, essentially unchanged in the day-to-day operations from the late nineteenth century, and there is a vibrant twenty-first century economy, providing leadership for the modern west.”
