The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Borger is a city in Hutchinson County, Texas, United States. The population was 14,302 at the 2000 census. The city of Borger is named after its founder, A. P. Ace Borger, who had a reputation throughout Oklahoma and Texas as a shrewd town promoter. Borger and his business partner John R. Miller purchased a 240-acre townsite near the Canadian River in March 1926 after the discovery of oil in the vicinity. Within a few months time, the boomtown had swelled to a population of 45,000, most lured by sensationalist advertising and black gold.
In October 1926, the city charter was adopted and Miller was elected mayor. By this time the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway had completed the spur line to Borger, a post office had opened, and a school district was established. The boomtown of Borger soon had steam-generated electricity, telephone service, a hotel and jail.
According to the United States census bureau, the city has a total area of 22.6 square kilometers, 22.6 square kilometers of it is land and 0.11 percent is water. In the city the population was spread out with 27.8 percent under the age of 18, 9.8 percent from 18 to 24, 25.4 percent from 25 to 44, 20.9 percent from 45 to 64, and 16.1 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 36 years. For every 100 females there were 95.3 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 91.2 males.

Education in the city in secondary and primary education is almost entirely conducted by the Borger Independent School District, with 2,800 students on five campuses namely Paul Belton Early Childhood Center, Crockett and Gateway Elementary, Borger Middle School, and Borger High School. A private institution, Cornerstone Christian Academy, also exists in Borger. Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church operated a Catholic school for many years, but is now closed. A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Borger is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
