Denver City, Texas

Denver City was established in 1939 when the Wasson oil pool developed, and was named by the oil company. It was incorporated in 1940 during the height of the oil boom.

Today the city is the center for industry and agriculture production in Yoakum County. Favorable weather conditions contribute to the growing of cotton, sorghum, peanuts, wheat, and other grains. Beef cattle is also an important part of the agricultural economy.
