Interesting webpage well done. Good use of color and graphics. If you know of a person whom I knew back in grade school who is a resident of Perryton, please pass this very warm greeting to Kelly Dryden Corby (?not sure of married name?). She and I (and several others too numerous to cite here) all grew up in Snyder, Texas. Hope you had a great Christmas and have a Happy News Years!!!

My sister is talking about Drake's store on Eaton and Drake streets. We had a lot of fun growing up in Perryton. Good people always make good friends. I want to say hi to The Lamoureaux's, The Betty (Dorton) Rogers family, The Mannings, The Uselton's, The Hargus Family. Our uncle Don Cox lived most of his life in Perryton until his accident. His friends can e-mail me to keep in touch with his condition. Remember: A Smile of Success is a Smile for Life

I lived in Perryton from 70-75 from the third grade to the sixth. My fondest memories are the park with the tunnel. when i went back a few years ago for a visit it sure looked a lot smaller.Does anyone remember the store where you bought an icee and it had a gumball,if you got a black one you won a free icee.

I was hoping someone could run down to the coffee shop and kick Max Replogle (wife's uncle)out before he tells another joke or orders another cup of coffee. He needs to get busy doing his regular job - watching grass grow on the local golf course.

Bored at work one day and decided to check to see if even Perryton has joined the .com world- surprised to say the least. I was a 1995 graduate. Funny, I am reading through all these entries and all the memories about Perryton. I guess I am keeping it straight in my mind. Perryton is out in the middle of nowhere-it's ugly out there!! There is not a thing to do. I remember moving to Dallas to go to college and thinking it was so beautiful and soooo fun! I think back on Perryton like a different life. It is so wonderfuly different out there in the real world. I could never, ever live in Perryton again. All though it is nice to visit.

But you know, "ya'll" could always come visit us! But we'll come visit you guys someday too, on our road trip!! I can't wait. (Neither can Bethany haha) And we could play cards all night long!! ("So this is like black jack!!" oh I'm a big goon...) Hey! Josh- what game never gets boring? :) umm... tennis of course! HAHAHA

~*~*~*~*~*~*WE MISS YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Lots and lots and lots of love, Sara and Bethany

I was born in Perryton in 1962 and lived there until I graduated High School in 1980. Although I have lived in Kansas for sometime, I visit often and miss not only Perryton, but Texas in general. I especially miss the lack of state income tax and property tax on vehicles! I attended the 2000 Reunion and had the greatest time of my life. (Well, one of the greatest.) One last comment. As I am President and owner of the McGrath Group, a Topeka Kansas advertising agency and I am not in jail, I wanted to let my former teachers (especially Mrs. Cooper) know that, gee, I made something of myself after all!

I lived in Perryton from 1965-1968. That's when my house burnt down. My Mother, Delores Snyder, was the manager of Green,s Cafe. Is it still there? I attended 3rd, 4th and 5th grades at Central Elementary and Perryton Junior High. We lived in a mobile home behing 509 S Amherst St. I would like to contact a close friend of my Mother's. Her name is Lillian Rock. She has a son, Johnny, that is about 46 years old now. My Mother is in very poor health and it would really be a blessing to re-unite them! I have really enjoyed your website and I now reside in Dallas. I would be extremely grateful if you would return my email. Thank you and Bod Bless Perryton!

Thanks to all who put on a great 2000 Reunion. It was wonderful seeing so many people. Thanks to all the class secretaries who worked so hard to make this such a memorable occasion. Class of 70 is still the BEST!! Perryton was a great little town to grow up in, especially when you move to Austin and have to fight this traffic everyday!! Hook 'em

I recently interviewed for the GM position at North Plains Electric Cooperative and have been selected for the job. My wife and I were very impressed with the people in the Perryton community.

We found the staff at PISD to be very professional and willing to answer any questions. The business people were very informative and spent time with us answering questions related to our business needs.

We are looking forward to our move to Perryton and wanted to express our appreciation to everyone that helped us. Thank you for your friendly and hospitable welcome.

Our family was searching the web for Hank the Cowdog info, and we saw the link for Perryton, so we just thought we would drop in for a visit! This is really a nice site. My mother's family is still in Perryton, so we REALLY feel like Hank the Cowdog is part of our extended family. We are currently living in Indonesia, and we have hauled Hank the Cowdog books half way around the world, since we can't find them here. But our 8 year old son did find the books in Singapore on a recent trip there! We were suprised and thrilled!

It was a thrill to visit the top of Texas and see the Wheatheart of the Nation.  Perryton is beautiful.  I am even considering moving there myself soon.

I'm working on my family tree and hope somebody there can help me past a dead end-- I know that my dad's father came from Perryton.  George Andrew Huston was born there in 1890, and his parents, John Henry Huston and Ellen Pamela Hoover were both also from Perryton.  Can you send me any information on them, like birth/marriage/death dates, further ancestors, anything?  I'd really appreciate it?  Say... do I have any relatives there now?

Hi!  Just chking up on good old Perryton.  I sure miss it & the people.  It is a great place to live (or was when we lived there 4 yrs. ago)  

When is the "The Perryton Herald" going to get on-line.  I still subscribe to the paper to keep up on the news, just wish I could get it sooner.  On the web would be great.  

Just wanted to say "Hi" to everyone back there.  Would love to hear from anyone interested in writing.

The Red Dirt Pedalers is a bicycle club in Stillwater, OK and we are making plans for a bike ride across the Oklahoma panhandle in October. Perryton to Liberal, KS may be the route we take. This website provides good information of places to stay and eat. Anyone interested in this joining this ride is welcome. Visit us at for more about our club including photos from several rides. 
If anyone one has useful local information such as good roads or bad roads, best place for pancakes, "you'll be smelling pig farms the whole way" (I hope not), or "we don't like your kind" (because of the tight bike shorts and brightly colored jerseys) it would be appreciated. 
By the way, the only reason we would leave TEXAS for Kansas would be because of a south tailwind.

We are looking for motel accommodations for 1st weekend in August; will be there to attend Canadian High School Reunion.  I was hoping you had a Holiday Inn Express, but don't seem to locate one.  Are any of your motels affiliated with a national chain?  If not, which one is newest?  And, are you able to recommend one?

This site has been very interesting, I never knew all of the history behind the town of Perryton, I was born here in 1959, my wife was born and raised in Pampa, I have very strong roots in Perryton, I have always loved to visit there. 

If you go down to a place called Hargues Corner, tell my little brother Jerry hello, and my Aunt Dixie, and tell Ricky and Danny to get to work.

Dear Sirs,
   After requesting info about airport I thought I was being ignored. Guess I should chill out. Your page was very impressing and had alot of information. My sister and her husband moved there recently, so I will be visiting your town frequently. I was impressed on my last visit. You have a very nice city.

We enjoy visiting your museum. It is a nice place to reminisce since my grandparents were pioneers in old Ochiltree,Texas and then later in Perryton. They owned several businesses in both towns.

Mark Goodman

I will be flying into the Perryton Airport next Tuesday, January 18 and would like to know if a courtesy car is available? If not, do you have a car rental location or taxi service available. Several of us in the party will need to find transportation to the Perryton Club. How far is the Airport from the Perryton Club?

Regards Mark Goodman

It is a heart warming feeling to see my hometown on the web. I have looked over the spread and find it making me homesick. It truely brings back great memories of school, church, and daily events that took place while I was growing up. There is no place like home. Hope to visit soon and also attend the reunion. Love you all, Chuck Shockley '69
