Borger, Texas

Borger was established following the discovery of a rich Panhandle Oil Field in 1926. In just months, a boom town of tents and shacks sprang up, and the population numbered more than 40,000. Orderly growth soon replaced the ribald oil boom days, and now Borger is a center for oil, chemicals, and cattle. Tanks and towers of oil and petrochemical plants dominate the skyline. Borger is the home of Frank Phillips College.
