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.

Water Line Project
Public Service Announcement

January 30, 2023

The City of Archer City has contracted with Canary Construction to replace certain water mains in Archer City, beginning January 30, 2023. This project is being funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), which provides opportunities for governments to make strategic investments in infrastructure.

This project will involve replacing water mains in certain areas of Archer City and tying in customer service lines, coming off the mains, to the meter boxes located on residential properties. All of the work performed will be within the City easements.

Updates will be announced periodically stating the areas of town where the contractors will be working.

The week beginning January 30 work will be performed on West Walnut from South Oak to South Poplar.

Updates will be posted on the City website at www.archercity.org and the City of Archer City Facebook page or citizens may call City Hall at (940) 574-4570.
