Promoted as the “Future Great City of West Texas” by railroad pioneers in 1881, Abilene became more than cattle and ranching land. With the arrival of the Texas and Pacific Railway came several hundred people looking to start new businesses and settle down. More than 130 years later, Abilene’s economy thrives due to the agriculture, commerce, light manufacturing, oil, and service industries. Today more than 117,063 people call Abilene home. The city, which is the 27th biggest in terms of population in the state, is home to seven colleges and universities.
Residents enjoy a wealth of cultural attractions including the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra, Buffalo Gap Historic Village, City of Abilene Zoological Gardens, The Grace Museum, and Paramount Theatre.
