1639B Courthouse“I am loving the plains more than ever it seems—and the SKY— Anita, you’ve never seen SKY—it is wonderful.”

“Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon is the go-to place for family and friends who come to visit us, especially if this is their first visit to the Texas Panhandle.” —LELIA GRONEMAN, VEGA

The great painter Georgia O’Keeffe thus described her life in Canyon in a 1916 letter to a friend. Spectacular skies still amaze fans of Canyon, a Panhandle college town about 20 miles south of Amarillo.
Canyon also offers the Panhandle- Plains Historical Museum, with its engaging account of regional and state history; the restored Randall County Courthouse; and nearby Palo Duro Canyon, one of the state’s most- treasured natural attractions.
