The Location Of The First Permanent School In The Texas Panhandle.
Conway, Texas, is located in Carson County, on Route 66 at State Highway 207. First established along with the Lone Star School, the first permanent school in the Texas Panhandle, Conway would begin to grow with the arrival of the Chicago, Rock Island and Gulf Railroad in 1903. A post office also opened the same year the railroad arrived, and a townsite, platted in 1905, was named for a county commissioner, H. B. Conway.

In 1926, the federal government designated Route 66 to traverse the Texas Panhandle. However, a dispute between towns the route would potentially service kept the ultimate path of Route 66 east of Amarillo from becoming finalized until 1930. With the completion of the road, Conway, Texas, quickly added services for motoring tourists.
With the completion of I-40, built 1.3 miles to the north of Conway in 1965, the town began to change as businesses failed and people moved away.
