Archer City Reviews

Archer City may seem like a small little town that doesn't have a whole lot to offer, but the history of the local area is wonderful and rich. Archer City is home to famous author Larry McMurtry, who received an award from President Obama just a few short years ago. Two movies, The Last Picture Show and Texasville, based on some of Larry McMurtry's work were filmed in town, using many citizens as extras. Actress of hit television show, "The Office," Angela Kinsey is also from Archer City. The county of Archer County is also scientifically significant. A few miles south of the town limits lies an abandoned satellite station that was the station which predicted the fall of NASA's Skylab in the 1970's. The county is also home to one of the most prominent fossil sites in the area, known as the Geraldine Bonebed.

I love the small town of Archer City, and I have been blessed to grow up here. I have made many relationships and without them, I would not be as successful.
