Founded in 1888 along the Fort Worth and Denver City Railway, the city became a shipping point for cotton and wheat. Oil later helped boost population numbers.
Recreation is available at the city's three lakes. Gordon Lake has a lighted walking track around the lake and has good fishing. Lake Iowa Park is for fishing, boating and other watercraft. Lake Buffalo is known for its excellent fishing.
The city recently added a water/spray park.
