Canyon Economic Development Corporation

A Catalyst for Community Growth

With attractions like Palo Duro Canyon State Park, the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, the blockbuster outdoor musical TEXAS, and much more, Canyon draws visitors from all over the world. What’s more, this all-in-one location is also attracting dynamic new business and residential growth, thanks to outstanding educational opportunities, low costs, and a uniquely satisfying quality of life. Canyon’s got it all together, all in one wonderfully friendly community ready to welcome you.

Canyon is generating real economic growth through evidence-based practices, and through the carefully devised Canyon Strategic Plan. Guided by the Plan as well as the national Main Street’s proven Four-Point Approach, the CEDC has shepherded into existence a new and exciting Downtown Dining District and a popular open-air retail mall, the Shops on Fifth Avenue. Local retail and the Downtown Dining District have improved the residential quality of life even as they have become premier visitor attractions.

Amarillo National Bank

Locally Owned, Family Strong, Here to Stay

The leadership history of Amarillo National Bank is an unbroken family tree. They've never sold out and never intend to. It began in 1892, when cattleman and early Amarillo settler B.T. Ware founded the bank that would become Amarillo National. His descendants have kept Amarillo National Bank in the family ever since.

We remain family-owned to this day, with no outside shareholders. This allows us to focus on the long term, not next quarter. Customer service still comes first. Community support is a priority.

The Ware family’s time-tested, conservative leadership means continuity and stability for our customers. We’ve seen good times. We’ve endured the bad. Through it all, we’ve stayed true to our family values and to the communities that make Texas a great place to live, work and do business.

Creek House Honey Farm

It started with a pumpkin patch...

The Nester family began a pumpkin farm in 2010, when the owners, Paige and George, decided to get some beehives to help pollinate their plants. Two hives turned into four, four turned into eight, and the rest is history!

George has a doctorate in Pharmacy and Paige has a teaching certificate in art and biology. Their love for science has turned into a love for beekeeping. They now run the farm full time along with help from family and friends. Their daughter, Blake Nester, has helped them run the farm since she graduated college and with the addition of an event space and Honey Buzz Winery, they're all very busy bees.
