Midland: A unique city that’s not just a midway point anymore
Originally founded as “Midway Station,” Midland was the midway point between Fort Worth and El Paso on the Texas and Pacific Railway in 1881. It was renamed Midland in 1884, when the city was granted its first post office. Incorporated in 1906, “The Tall City” is nestled in the southern plains of West Texas — 130 miles south of Lubbock, and 300 miles from El Paso to the west and Fort Worth to the east. Oil was discovered in the Permian Basin in 1923, and the energy industry has been greatly beneficial to Midland. Many major office buildings were erected during the oil boom, including the 24-story Bank of America Building. With success came investment in museums, the arts and popular attractions. History buffs can enjoy the Permian Basin Petroleum Museum, which focuses on the oil and gas industry, as well as the Museum of the Southwest, which includes a Children’s Museum and a planetarium. Midland College is home to the McCormick Gallery, and the Arts Council of Midland promotes the arts locally. The Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale has performed for nearly 50 years, and since 1946, the Midland Community Theatre has produced a wide variety of shows.
