Archer City, Texas

Archer City was established as the Archer County seat in 1881, and in its early years it was a retail and shipping center for area ranches and is still a retail center for the county. Agriculture includes cattle ranching, wheat and dairy farming. Shallow oil wells drilled in the 1920s still contribute to the area economy.

Outdoor recreation includes a 9-hole golf course, and city park with swimming, picnicking, RV hookups, and hunting when in season for dove, wild turkey, quail, and deer.

The Booked Up, Inc. bookstore offers the largest collection of antiquarian books in the U.S. gathered over several years by native son Larry McMurtry, author of the popular Western novel, "Lonesome Dove." Also available are rare and unusual books and out-of-print publications. Archer City is the site of two movies based on novels written by McMurtry; "The Last Picture Show" filmed in 1971, and "Texasville" in 1989.
