Borger is the largest city in Hutchinson County, Texas, United States. Borger is named for businessman Asa Philip “Ace” Borger, who also established the Hutchinson County seat of Stinnett and several other small towns in Texas and Oklahoma. By the 1960s, the Borger area was one of the largest producers of oil, carbon black, and petrochemicals and supplies in the state. The creation of nearby Lake Meredith also added to the town’s economy as an important recreational area. Today, Borger remains an important shipping point for agricultural produce, as well as for the petroleum products produced there. It is the home of the world’s largest inland petrochemical complexes.
