Discover Wellington

Wellington is a beautiful small town located off Highway 83 in the Panhandle of Texas.  With a population of just over 2,000, Wellington boasts great schools, excellent medical facilities and services and an abundance of recreational opportunities. Oh, and don't forget the great people! One of our claims to fame involves Bonnie and Clyde. The infamous couple wrecked their car near Wellington, terrorized a family and ended up shooting the daughter before kidnapping two law enforcement officers and taking them to Erick Oklahoma.
