History on a Pinhead

Founded as a stop on the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway in 1919, the town was named after the president of the railroad - Ginery Twichell.

Twichell, Texas bears an uncanny resemblance to Bee Countyís town of Tynan.


Photographer's Note:
Seven minutes west of Booker and six minutes east of Perryton on TX 15. I suppose Twichell is closer to a town than a ghost town. It has commerce, a few houses and a road sign. - Barclay Gibson, July 09, 2010
