Texhoma City

Texhoma City was in north central Archer County. The settlement developed around the drilling activities of the Texhoma Oil Company in 1921. Since this drilling took place on land owned by the Gose family, the community also was known locally as Gose City. Like some other boom towns, Texhoma City grew rapidly, then declined. Its population reportedly reached 500 persons soon after its founding. By the mid-1930s, when the oil boom had long since ended, however, Texhoma City's population had fallen to 215, and four businesses were in operation. A decade later, when the community last reported such statistics, the population numbered 150 and the businesses four. Sometime afterward, Texhoma City ceased to exist.
