 "AMARILLO, the geographical and trade center of 25,000 square miles of the Texas Panhandle and a still larger area of Eastern New Mexico, and Western Oklahoma, had 9,957 population inside the corporate limits by the 1910 census. The actual population of Amarillo in 1912 is easily 12,000 and there has never been a cessation in her growth. Amarillo has three transcontinental railway systems, with vast shops, offices and terminal facilities of the Santa Fe and with division offices and shops for the Fort Worth & Denver (Hill Lines) and Rock Island. Amarillo has a Federal Court, weather bureau, Court of Civil Appeals. Amarillo's school, church and college property aggregates over a million dollars in value. Amarillo's growth is substantial and modern both in her buildings and in her industrial, commercial, social and civic enterprises. Congress has authorized an appropriation of $250,000 for the erection of a Federal building on a site valued at $10,000 which has already been deeded to the government. By reason of her mountain altitude, 3700 feet above sea level, Amarillo enjoys a life-giving atmosphere which attracts many visitors and many residents from less favored climes. Fifteen miles south of the city lies the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon, which has already become a nature's playground of national fame."
