The town was established after the discovery of a rich Panhandle oil field in 1926. Soon, a boomtown of tents and shacks sprang up, and the population numbered more than 40,000. Orderly growth replaced the ribald oil-boom days, and now Borger is a center for oil, chemicals and cattle. Towers of oil and petrochemical plants dominate the skyline. Home of Frank Phillips College.
Annual events include Adobe Walls Trek in June and Juried Quilt Show in July.
