In the cross of what was once called Twist Junction lays the sleepy little town of Dalhart. Nestled in the most northwest corner of the Texas Panhandle is the home of over 8,500 residents, and offers a wholesome and homegrown environment to live, work and play.
The people who call Dalhart home are always willing to make new friends, start a new business venture, or especially welcome a new neighbor, that’s why we’re called the pearl of the panhandle.
Dalhart hosts a booming economy with its main business revolving around production agriculture and the many support services and transportation associated with the farming and ranching industries. Employers in the local area include Union Pacific and BNSF Railroad, Hilmar Cheese Company, Cargill, Sweet Bran, Texas Department of Criminal Justice, county and city government, financial institutions and farm service retailers. These businesses make up a small but vital part of the available career opportunities in Dalhart.
