|Today's City of Hobbs had its
beginnings as four separate towns; Hobbs, New Hobbs, All
Hobbs and Borger.
Hobbs, which is also sometimes called "Old Hobbs" was located north of Marland, south of Sanger, west of Dal Paso and east of Grimes.
New Hobbs was located south of Marland, west of Dal Paso, north of Stanolind Road and east of Grimes.
All Hobbs was located north of Marland, east of Dal Paso, south of Snyder and west of Jefferson and was never developed.
Borger, later name Shelton, was located one-half mile northwest of Old Hobbs and was promoted in 1930, but was never developed.
The four towns were eventually consolidated into the City of Hobbs in 1937.
