When Tucumcari was first settled in 1901, it was a tent city called Ragtown. This tent city soon earned the nickname "Six Shooter Siding." With saloons and outlaws, it was a rowdy railroad camp for the Chicago, Rock Island and Union Pacific Railroad. Once the railroad reached the area, the small town of Liberty was dismantled and moved closer. The town became officially known as Tucumcari within a year of this move. The origin of the name is unknown, but there are various theories.

The most credible idea is the name comes from the Comanche word "tukamukara," which means "lookout point" or "signal peak." It is suggested that it was named after the mountains that act as a backdrop for the town. This move also brought merchants, dance hall girls, gamblers and bartenders to the small tent city. Five businessmen from Liberty are credited as the fathers of Tucumcari. These five filed a claim on 120 acres and then donated the land to the town.

The first businesses in 1902 were the Barnes and Rankin furniture store, Monarch Saloon, Blankenship's livery barn, and a hotel. Max Goldenburg owned the first permanent home in the town. This home also contained the first post office. The first drugstore was established in 1906. By 1910, Tucumcari was home to over 70 businesses.

Today, the town has a population of around 5,000 and contains 776 registered businesses. These businesses include motels, hotels, government offices and restaurants. The restaurants include Blake's Lotaburger, Palomino and Pinon Tree. One of the locals' favorite spots is Tucumcari Memorial Park. The town also sits on Historic Route 66 and is the largest city on this highway between Amarillo and Albuquerque.
