9780738596938: Lost Abilene (Images of America)

In 1881, the Texas & Pacific Railroad described Abilene as the “Future Great City of the West.” While the train line was laying rails west out of Fort Worth, a group of ranchers, wanting the new town to become a prominent cattle-shipping point, selected the name Abilene after Abilene, Kansas, which was a main cattle-shipping town in the 1870s. With the arrival of the railroad to Abilene, this part of Texas opened up for settlement. Families rushed to establish the town and set up new businesses, but it was the military coming to Abilene that really made the city’s population explode. Lost Abilene documents the early homes, businesses, schools, and entertainment that helped shape the city.
