First settled in 1887, Amarillo is in the middle of the West Texas Panhandle, bordered by New Mexico and Oklahoma. The name comes from the Spanish word for yellow and was taken from the yellow-colored subsoil in the channel of the main creek. In the early days, most area homes were painted yellow to commemorate the town’ s name. Rail growth through the 1890s allowed the city to become one of the world’s greatest cattleshipping markets.
The city’s economic reputation was built on agriculture and energy production. Amarillo has the world’s largest natural gas development and provides pipelines to many large cities and thousands of towns connecting through to the Atlantic seaboard.
