In media[edit]

The 1992 Steve Martin film Leap of Faith was partially filmed on location in Plainview. Until 2016, the downtown water tower bore the name and mascot of the fictional town in which the movie is set: The Rustwater Bengals. The Quick Lunch Diner, where several scenes were filmed, is now closed, and the site is now home to the Broadway Brew.

In the eighteenth episode of the second season of Vice Plainview was featured as a ghost town in a feature called "Deliver Us from Drought".

Education[edit]

The City of Plainview is served by the Plainview Independent School District.

Wayland Baptist University is a four-year university with approximately 1100 students at its main campus in Plainview. South Plains College-Plainview Branch

The Llano Estacado Museum is located in Plainview.

The Bulldog is the mascot for the Plainview High School.

Economy[edit]

On February 11, 2009, the Texas Department of State Health Services ordered the cessation of operations and full recall of all products produced by a Plainview-based peanut processing facility owned by Peanut Corporation of America, following the discovery of "dead rodents, rodent excrement and bird feathers in the plant," and revelations that the plant had operated without state licensure or inspection. The plant had voluntarily suspended operations one day earlier, and was not linked to the salmonella outbreak that had forced the shutdown of other PCA plants.[15][16]

The largest employer was a Cargill beef processing plant, mothballed on February 1, 2013 due to lack of incoming animals from the local area due to the 2010–2012 Southern United States drought. Closure of the plant created a crisis in Plainview as an annual payroll of $15.5 million was lost and many of the 2,300 employees and their families relocated after being laid off.[17]
