Things don't get much quieter than in the small town of Spearman, Texas. Spearman sits on top the caprock, at an elevation of 3000 feet above sea level, in the great plains of the Texas panhandle.

My family moved to Spearman in 1969. In 1977, I graduated with 81 other students from Spearman Senior High and moved from Spearman to Perryton, Texas, 23 miles away for a year, then moved back home. I married, had two kids and then left Spearman for good on April 28, 1984.

If you are looking for excitement in life, don't move to Spearman! But if you are looking for a good place to raise your kids, and a great place to slow down and get away from the stresses of the big city, this is definitely the place for you.
