History

Quanah was organized in 1884 as a stop on the Fort Worth and Denver Railway. The city is named for Quanah Parker, the last Comanche chief.

The county seat of Hardeman County was moved from Margaret to Quanah in 1890 after an acrimonious battle that contributed to the splitting off of the southern section of Hardeman County as Foard County.[5] The courthouse, constructed in 1908, anchors what is now the historic downtown district. The courthouse was financed by a bond election approved by voters in 1906. The project architect was R.H. Stuckey of Chillicothe, Texas. It has a domed cupola and Ionic columns.[6]

Geography

Quanah is at the geographic center of Hardeman County, at the intersection of U.S. Route 287 (11th Street) and Texas State Highway 6 (Main Street).

Highway 6 leads south 21 miles (34 km) to Crowell and north 8 miles (13 km) to the Oklahoma border at the Red River. Altus, Oklahoma, is 40 miles (64 km) northeast of Quanah via Oklahoma Highway 6.
