Welcome to the official website of the City of Archer City.  Archer City is 25 miles southwest of Wichita Falls, lies at the junction of State Highway 79 and State Highway 25, and is the county seat of Archer County.  We are a quaint Texas town that enjoys our “small town” feel and friendliness but also offers some finer aspects of city life. 

Many know of Archer City because of our famous native son, Pulitzer Prize winning author, Larry McMurtry.  Movies based on his novels, The Last Picture Show and Texasville, were filmed on the streets of Archer City. 

Ranching and oil are two major industries in our area.  Archer County is known as the “Short Grass Ranching Capital” of the nation because our grass, which is short, has tremendous strength and nutritious qualities. We are also known for excellent hunting. Our area is home to deer, dove, quail, turkey, and wild hogs.
