We are proud of Andrews, Texas and its unique history, as well as the giant strides in progress the community has taken since it’s founding in 1908. The pioneers of Andrews brought with them an enterprising spirit that remains to this day. The environment of support, cooperation, and collaboration is the reason we have been recognized as a vibrant and forward-moving community.
Andrews is known for its oil, ranching, and over 13,000 friendly, active people; plus the quality of life encompasses an excellent school system and first-class health care facilities. Superb law enforcement, fire protection, and ambulance services also add to the quality amenities in our way of life. Andrews offers the advantages that come with residing in a smaller city – a low cost of living, a very low crime rate, fresh, clean air, and plenty of good neighbors.
Located at the geographic center of the Permian Basin, a vast reserve of oil and gas, Andrews has taken advantage of its wealth of natural resources to reinvest in its infrastructure and education with vision and fiscal responsibility. The City of Andrews and Andrews County are 100% debt-free, a rare accomplishment in today’s economy.
We believe it would be hard to match our community in education, health care, quality of life, and activities for both young and old. Nowhere is it more evident than the exceptional city of Andrews, which offers a blend of Western living, small-town America, and all the amenities of a modern day lifestyle.
Ask any resident of Andrews why they have chosen to live here, and the answers will be as varied as the people who make it their home. Some are here because this is where they have chosen to raise and educate their families. Others love the open plains and beautiful, breathtaking sunsets. Many enjoy the simple, but excellent quality of life, coupled with the lower cost of living. And still some will say the medical facilities here are second to none. Indeed, Andrews is a quality community of positive energy.
If you’re looking for a place to raise a family or relocate a business, you’ll find a “quality” environment and a “forward-looking” community that is warm and welcoming. We invite you to see for yourself why we say, ”it’s a great place to visit, and an even better place to live!”
Meet the Chamber
The Andrews Chamber is a private, non-profit corporation with a 501-C6 designation and serves as a voluntary organization of citizens who invest their time and money in a community development program. There is a misconception that the Chamber is run by the City and/or the County governments. This is not true. We are run solely on membership dues. Membership dues help support our day-to-day operations and community events, such as the 4th of July Festivities, Holly Jolly Weekend, and Leadership Andrews, which are led by our Chamber volunteer organizations.
