About Wichita Falls
Wichita Falls was founded in 1876, it was named for the Wichita Indians and the low-water river falls that existed there until 1886, when they were washed away by a flood. A falls, with 35,000 gallons [130,000 litres] recirculating per minute, has been recreated as a tourist attraction. After the arrival (1882) of the Fort Worth and Denver City Railroad, it became a cattle centre. With the local discovery of oil and gas fields in the 1900s, the city developed petroleum industries.
Agriculture (cotton, grains, and cattle), based on the surrounding irrigated region, remains an important part of a balanced economy, which includes some manufacturing. Area expansion in the mid‐1930’s brought the Municipal Airport and Hardin Junior College, which later expanded to become Midwestern State University.
