Description
Midland is a West Texas oil center that lies on the former Chihuahua Trail, the Emigrant Road to California and the Comanche War Trail. The settlement, named in 1880 for its location halfway between Fort Worth and El Paso, was a quiet farming town until its economy changed in 1923 with the tapping of the huge Permian Basin petroleum supply.
President George W. Bush spent his formative years in Midland; the Bush family lived in the area 1948-59. While working in Houston, George W. was introduced to Laura Welch, a young librarian from his home town. The couple married in 1977 and made their home in Midland.
