Tampico was on the Fort Worth and Denver line between Turkey and Parnell in southwestern Hall County. It was the site of a wildcat oil well drilled in 1929 and named by its optimistic operators for an oilfield in Tampico, Mexico. By 1933 the community reported twenty-five residents and one business. The population of Tampico had dwindled to only twelve by 1965, after which no further population statistics were available.
