Dalhart Area Chamber of Commerce

Dalhart is the center of activity for the neighboring communities of Texline, Hartley and Channing, and is located in the northwest corner of the Lone Star State. Dalhart is named for the two counties that it borders – Dallam and Hartley.


Dalhart boasts the top grain and corn production in the state, and is home to the top companies in the cattle, hog dairy and cheese industries. The progressive nature of this community has been to actively attract value-added agricultural businesses to our area to enhance the thriving agribusiness climate of the Panhandle.


Dalhart has a wonderful, relaxed spirit that is attractive to newcomers and visitors. What other city offers the world’s largest free barbeque? Feeding an estimated 20,000 people during the annual XIT Rodeo and Reunion, this “little” get-together, celebrated the first Thursday through Saturday of each August, is a 70+ year Dalhart tradition, and still going strong.


And, we are not only about business. Education, the arts and quality of life are other traits that make Dalhart a popular home for young families, retirees and businesses. The LaRita Theatre, dubbed the crown jewel of the Panhandle, hosts theatrical and musical performances throughout the year. Youth are afforded a multitude of opportunities in education, sports, organizations and art-enrichment programs.


Highlights of Dalhart’s recent successes include the attraction of a major manufacturing facility, Hilmar Cheese; expansion of US Highway 87 to a four-lane divided highway in Dallam County; remodeling of the Rita Blanca Coliseum into a state-of-the-art facility; and the addition of the Legacy Assisted Living Community.


The future is paved with more highlights to come with our inclusion in the Ports-to-Plains Trade Corridor connecting Mexico to Colorado through west Texas; expanded agricultural opportunities; and a new high school planned for occupancy in 2007.


The mainstay of this community is the pride of its people – whether long-time family legacies or newly relocated families – with a purpose of preserving our past and focusing on our future.

Oldham County Interesting Facts

Oldham County is larger than the state of Rhode Island, measuring 50 miles by 30 miles. It was once part of the famous XIT Ranch, the 3-million acre ranch granted in 1879 by the state of Texas to the Capital Land Syndicate
in exchange for building the present-day capitol in Austin. The population is 2,185 according to the 2000 Census —almost one square mile for every person, with more cattle than people.

Oldham County has been dubbed the SOLAR CAPITAL of Texas,
with more solar heating systems per capita used in homes, businesses, churches and schools. It's the 7th sunniest areas of the United States.

Oldham County has been the site of various movies and videos including:
the movie “What Matters Most”, Vince Gill’s county music video “Never Knew Lonely”, and several Route 66 documentaries. It's home to western novelist Sam Brown, published photographer Paula Chamblee and author Shelly Armitage. It's also hom to Old Tascosa and Cal Farley's Boys Ranch. Boys & girls now live and are educated where Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, Colonel Charles Goodnight, and Sam Houston’s son once rode in a wild cow town.

Adrian is the geo-mathematical midpoint of Route 66. “When You’re Here, You’re Half-Way There!”

Our active oil & gas fields produce vast amounts of Petroleum.


The “front door” to this City on the Move is the Chamber of Commerce. Working through the community leaders and volunteers, the Chamber is the source of energy for our enjoyable city. You’ll see the Chamber blending small-town values with the best of large-city opportunities.
