    Yep, first sign of civilization south of Umbarger. Not sure about the tourist mecca, but it was very popular before all the counties went wet. Drove over there from Plainview to buy beer back in the day.

    Littlefield, north side of town just west of 385. That's the RR depot to the right of the windmill.

    You got it. The original was located 10 miles or so SW of Littlefield on the (at that time) south pasture of the XIT. There are a couple of historical markers out there. One for the windmill and one for an old indian camp/trading spot called Casa Amarillo.
