About Bowie, TX
  • Located just 25 miles south of the Oklahoma border and an hour northwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, Bowie, Texas may be off the beaten path, but we’re anything but removed.

  • Originally built as a railroad town in 1881, Bowie sits along two major rail lines (BNSF and Union Pacific), and just four hours by rail to Western markets like Amarillo, Texas.

  • Bowie’s centralized location offers immediate access to both US highways 287 and 81, which offer connections to Interstate highways 35 and 41. We’re also home to Montague County’s only airport, Bowie Municipal Airport, which offers a 3,600-foot runway and 24/7 emergency hangar space.

  • Our proximity to many major markets and our connections to state highways make us an ideal location
