Lubbock City is located in the heart of the South Plains within northwest Texas and currently has a population of about 212,000. Texas Panhandle is north of the city and Permian Basin lies to the south. The city's elevation is 3,256 feet.

Lubbock City was named after Thomas S. Lubbock, who was a former Texas Ranger and Confederate during the Civil War. During this time his brother, Francis R. Lubbock, served as the governor of Texas.

During the year 1876, the county of Lubbock was formed, although the existing city wasn't established until 1890. The settlement of Lubbock was formed by the merging of Old Lubbock and Monterey, that were two separate settlements within the county. During the year 1891 Lubbock City was dubbed the county seat and Lubbock City was incorporated on the 16th of March, the year 1909.

The rail service was established shortly after Lubbock was incorporated. Agriculture grew along with the development of the railroads. The area soon became the marketing hub of the county. As such they were known as the "Hub of the Plains."

Because quite a few more opportunities were presented to the city it continued to develop. A significant boost to the cities economy came from the opening of Texas Technological College in the year 1925. The effects of the Great Depression were countered by the development of two military training bases throughout WWII. The cities population expanded quickly when the war ended. All through the '40's, the growth rate was second only to Albuquerque all over the whole country.

The worst tragedy that the Lubbock City went through was a tornado which hit on May 11,the year 1970. It is considered amongst the strongest tornadoes in history and caused 26 fatalities. It led to more than $135 million in damages spanning more than three square miles of the city. Together with the repairs done on the damaged buildings, they built the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center as a tribute to people who were victims of this devastating natural disaster.

The city's economy is still based mostly on the agricultural business with supplementary income coming from different manufacturing facilities. Lubbock continues to diversify the economy in fields including retail trade, government, education, and health care. The agricultural industry draws in roughly $22 billion dollars annually with cotton being the main crop. Cotton is not only a marketable commodity. It also provides help in order to support related companies, including gins, compresses, cottonseed meal, lint, a denim plant and some processing factories.
