What Bert Has To Say About Wichita Falls Metro Area

Wichita Falls, named for a 5-foot waterfall considered significant in these flat parts, is an agricultural and ranching center that boomed during the 1930’s with the discovery of oil. Agriculture, petroleum and manufacturing of auto parts and aviation components are the economic mainstays; there is a small Air Force base and a small four-year college in addition.
