Plainview has a dynamic and interesting history, first put on the map for being used as the fictional town of "Rustwater" in a 1992 Steve Martin movie. The downtown water tower still reads "Rustwater Bengals," and the town of 20,000 -- located on the Texas high plains between Amarillo and Lubbock -- still chuckles about the confusion it causes. Plainview also has a rich history of cattle and agriculture, and a trail of painted cows standing guard throughout the city is a major attraction.

From nomads to cattlemen: Nomads and bison populated the Great Plains for thousands of years before settlers discovered the advantages of the Running Water Draw that eventually became downtown Plainview. The town received its charter in 1888, and early growth was dramatic as the railroad in 1906 encouraged even more growth. Abundant water is still available, making Plainview the area's agricultural hub as well as a growing center for business, culture and commerce. Try some homestyle cooking at The Cotton Patch Cafe, or grab a special coffee from the trained baristas at Broadway Brew.
Housing is stabilizing: This would be a good time to consider rent to own homes in Plainview. Home prices have fallen over the past year, but a relatively low number of homes are on the market at any given time.

Culture on the frontier: Even the early settlers wanted to enjoy life. The Plainview Community Concert Series is a popular attraction, and the Plainview Symphony plays regularly at Harrel Auditorium.
