Midland was established in June 1881 as Midway Station, on the Texas and Pacific Railway. It became the county seat of Midland County in March 1885, when that county was first organized and separated from Tom Green County. The city has many connections to the Bush family; It was the onetime home of former Presidents George H. W. and George W. Bush and the hometown of former First Lady Laura Bush. Midland's economy still relies heavily on petroleum, but the city has also become a regional telecommunications and distribution center. The Permian Basin produces one fifth of the nation's total petroleum and natural gas output. In 1967, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the case Avery v.Midland County, in which Midland mayor Hank Avery challenged the electoral-districting scheme in effect for elections to the County Commissioner's Court. The court ruled that the scheme violated the Fourteenth Amendment's Equal Protection clause. At the 2020 census, Midland had a population of 132,524; it is the principal city of the Midland, Texas metropolitan statistical area, which includes Midland and Martin counties. The metropolitan area is part of the larger MidlandOdessa Combined Statistical Area, which will have a total population of 340,391 in the 2020 Census. It has a semi-arid climate with hot summers and cool winters. It receives approximately 13.5 inches (340 mm) of precipitation per year, much of which falls in the summer, but rarely sees extended periods of below-freezing cold waves.

History

Midland was established in June 1881 as Midway Station, on the Texas and Pacific Railway. By 1890, it had become one of the state's most important cattle shipping centers. The city was incorporated in 1906, and by 1910 established its first fire department, along with a new water system. Midland became the county seat of Midland County in March 1885, when that county was first organized and separated from Tom Green County. Today, the Permian Basin produces one fifth of the nation's total petroleum and natural gas output. By August 2006, a busy period of crude oil production had caused a significant workforce deficit in the Midland area. In 1967, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the case Avery v. Midlands County, challenging the electoral-districting scheme in effect for elections to the County Commissioner's Court. The county districts geographically quartered the county, but Midland, in the northwestern quarter, had 97% of the county's population. A dissenting minority held that this example of the Warren Court's policy of incorporation at the local-government level exceeded its constitutional authority. In 1959, John Howard Griffin wrote a history of Midlands, Land of the High Sky. The Midland Chamber of Commerce says there are almost 2,000 more jobs available in the PerMian Basin than there are workers to fill them. By the end of the 1990s, the city had a workforce deficit of more than 1,000 people per day. The U.N. World Economic Forum says the city has a population of 1.2 million.

Four buildings over 500 feet (150 m) tall were planned in the 1980s, including one designed by architect I.M. Pei. The great oil bust of the mid-1980s killed any plans for future skyscrapers.
