From Wikipedia:

History

In 1888, the Santa Fe Railroad was constructed through the area where Pampa would be established. A rail station and telegraph office were built, and the townsite was laid out by George Tyng, manager of the White Deer Lands ranch. The town was first called "Glasgow", then "Sutton", and then the name was changed to "Pampa" after the pampas grasslands of South America at Mr. Tyng's suggestion. Timothy Dwight Hobart, a native of Vermont, sold plots of land for the town only to people who agreed to settle there and develop the land, and Pampa soon became a center for agriculture. Gas and oil were discovered in the Texas Panhandle in 1916. Pampa prospered greatly in the resulting oil boom, and the Gray County seat of government was moved in 1928 from Lefors to Pampa.[8]

 

By the 1920s, Pampa was linked by rail to Hemphill County and Clinton, Oklahoma, through the combination of two similarly named companies, the Clinton, Oklahoma, and Western Railroad Company and the Clinton-Oklahoma-Western Railroad Company of Texas. Both of these companies were soon leased and purchased by the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway, which held them until disestablishment in 1965.

 

The Army Air Forces Training Command operated the Pampa Army Air Field that was in operation from 1942 to 1945. The former base is located near the intersection of SH 152 and FM 1474, about 10 miles east of the town.

 

1995 tornado

On June 8, 1995, a violent tornado hit the industrial section on the west side of Pampa, destroying or damaging about 250 businesses and homes. It resulted in $30 million in damage and was the costliest and the most destructive tornado on record for this town. It had a 3-mile-long path and was 200 yards wide. At its peak, it was rated an F4 on the Fujita scale.

 

Geography

Pampa is located in northwestern Gray County.[12] According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total land area of 9.0 square miles (23.2 km2), all land.

 

U.S. Route 60 passes through Pampa, leading northeast 46 miles (74 km) to Canadian and southwest 54 miles (87 km) to Amarillo. Texas State Highway 70 crosses US 60 in the southwest part of Pampa and leads north 62 miles (100 km) to Perryton and south 24 miles (39 km) to Interstate 40.


PampaFest
2001

From Jamie and the Committee: Class of 1969, this weekend was just the best! Many classmates visited throughout the weekend. Thanks so much to the committee and the classmates that were able to attend. Thanks to the great band The Jackie Haney "Old Geezers". They truly know what songs to play to bring us back to our memories of our 1960's and 1970's.

PampaFest was fabulous. We have such an incredible class. What friends we didn't have in our class years ago, we now have in our senior years. Maybe, this get-together should be an annual occasion! August 22nd, 2021
