House in Perico Texas Built in 4 Days in 1907

In 1907, eight construction workers (and a small boy) posed with a house they built in four days in Perico Texas. Perico is now a ghost town on U.S. Highway 87 twenty-five miles northwest of Dalhart and eleven miles southeast of Texline in western Dallam County. It was begun in 1888 as a shipping point on the Fort Worth and Denver City Railway for the Farwell Park line camp of the XIT Ranch, a quarter mile to the north, and was originally called Farwell after the camp.
