I have lived in Dalhart for 18 yrs, it has community school and a college, have no need to travel far to go to college, however they made the college after I was done with college in Amarillo.
I love living in this medium sized town. I know just about everyone here, and the people are so friendly. I have had the opportunity to be involved in the community and many organizations.
