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.

Ambulance Requests

Due to a recent influx of concerns regarding the Corona virus and Flu viruses, it is a perfect time to remind our citizens of the appropriate reasons to call 911 for ambulance transport.

Please do not call 911 for flu like symptoms, i.e., fever cough, body aches.
If you are experiencing flu like symptoms, please call your primary care physician to discuss treatment options. Physicians can give the best recommendations of care without an Emergency Room visit.
Paramedics and EMT’s must transport patients to the ER. This will expose our EMS personnel, ER staff, and other patients to potentially communicable viruses. Tying up an ambulance for non-emergency calls will likely delay our ability to respond to a life-threatening emergency.
We are a rural EMS provider with limited resources and a fixed number of personnel and ambulances.
If you are having a life-threatening emergency, CALL 911.
