Founded in the 1880s, Chillicothe developed rapidly after the construction of the Fort Worth and Denver City Railway in 1887. The community was named by A.E. Jones for his hometown in Missouri. The post office was established in 1883 and the town was incorporated in 1907.
Chillicothe is called The Iris Village because of the many iris that grow all around the town.
Located on the U.S. Highway 287, Chillicothe is a busy stop for those travelling and a popular trucking route.
The town has a current population of 686 and several local businesses.
