Community Overview:

Amarillo is located within the middle of the Texas Panhandle in the northern part of the state, within Potter County. The city is almost equidistant from Albuquerque, NM (285 miles to the west) and Oklahoma City, OK (245 miles to the east), both of which are accessible via Interstate I-40. First settled in 1887, the settlement originally called Oneida would later change its name to Amarillo, the Spanish language translation of "yellow."
