Electra, Texas, originally known as Beaver, was established in western Wichita County as a trading post for the Comanches under Quanah Parker in 1889. In 1900, W.T. Waggoner convinced the Fort Worth and Denver Railroad to build a switch in Beaver, and the town was renamed to honor his daughter, Electra. Testing for oil in 1911 set off a boom that peaked at 8,288,000 barrels in 1914. The Electra wells turned out over a million barrels per year into the 1950s.

Fort Davis, Texas, is the county seat of Jeff Davis County. The precursor of the town was a rough-and-tumble settlement formed just southwest of the military post of Fort Davis. Fort Davis, at the eastern base of the Davis Mountains, was founded 1854. The army post guarded the Trans-Pecos segment of the southern route to California, as the main fort in a line of forts stretching from San Antonio to El Paso. It played a significant role in the defense and development of West Texas. By the early 1890s the army abandoned the fort and the town, which had been a crossroads for travelers and hunters declined in population. Because of its mild climate and location, the town has become a resort during the twentieth century.

After the opening of Texas Technological College, the library started gathering manuscript material. As the potential of the collection became obvious, it was separated into an entity of its own. The archives, named the Southwest Collection, had its first official location in the basement of what was then the West Texas Museum (now called Holden Hall). Over the years, the collection grew in size and reputation. In 1963, the collection was moved from its home of 8 years and placed in the basement of the library (now the Math building). Once again the archives outgrew its location. In 1997, the Southwest Collection moved into its new building, located just north of the main Library. The archives was renamed the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.

Burkburnett is located in north central Wichita County. In 1912, oil was discovered west of town. Large strikes drew thousands of people to the area until the boom died out in the late 1920s.

Named for H. K. Thurber, a friend of the founders of the Texas and Pacific Coal Company, Thurber, Texas was a company town. Coal was discovered by W. W. Johnson (1886) who sold out to the Texas and Pacific Coal Company (1888) who, in turn, sold the coal to the Texas and Pacific Railroad. The coal company also produced a high quality paving brick. At its peak, Thurber had a population of 10,000, including immigrant workers of at least 13 different nationalities. Every structure within the city limits was company owned. The stores, schools, churches and all medical care were provided to the workers by the company as a part of their salary. The advancement of oil burning locomotives cut the demand for coal, and the last coal mine in the area closed in 1931. Only four structures remain in the city today.

Fort Concho, in San Angelo, Texas, was one of a number of military posts built to establish law and order in West Texas as settlers began to arrive after the Civil War. It was located at the juncture of the Main and North Concho rivers and named after the rivers which converge in San Angelo to form the Concho. Soldiers from Fort Concho scouted and mapped large portions of West Texas. As the town of San Angelo began to form across the river from Fort Concho, civilian law enforcement improved and the army abandoned the fort on June 20, 1889. In the fort was designated a National Historic Landmark. Besides museum exhibits and living history programs, Fort Concho hosts a variety of community activities.

Located ten miles west of Stephenville, Texas in west central Erath County, Lingleville developed following the establishment of a nearby grocery store by R. P. Campbell in 1884. Alliance College was established by the Farmer's Alliance. Now a ghost town, Thurber, Texas, once boasted a population of maybe 10,000, and was the principal bituminous coal mining town in Texas. The townsite is seventy-five miles west of Fort Worth, Texas, in Erath County. Coal deposits were discovered by William Whipple Johnson, an engineer for the Texas and Pacific Railway in the mid-1880s.

In 1881, Cisco, Texas, was established at the junction of the Texas and Pacific railroad and the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas in northwestern Eastland county. After suffering several setbacks, such as the cyclone that struck the town in 1893, Cisco became part of the oil boom at Ranger in 1917. The town remains a shipping point for petroleum.

Located in southeastern Eastland County, Texas, Desdemona was originally settled in 1860. In September 1918, the Joe Duke discovery well created an oil boom that saw Desdemona covered with a sea of oil rigs. The Desdemona field was drilled by numerous small operators. Crowded conditions led to increased lawlessness and by 1920, the Texas Rangers had to intervene to reestablish order. Oil production quickly peaked at 7,375,825 barrels in 1919.
