HISTORY

San Angelo was established across the river from historic Fort Concho, an outpost established in 1867 that served as headquarters for the 4th and 10th Cavalry and 16th Infantry. The fort was home to cavalry, infantry, and the famous Black Cavalry, also known as Buffalo Soldiers by Indigenous Americans. The settlement was originally named “Santa Angela” in honor of Carolina Angela de la Garza DeWitt, the deceased wife of the city’s founder Bart J. DeWitt, a merchant and businessman. The name was later changed to San Angelo.

After being designated as the Tom Green County seat, the town grew quickly in the 1880s, aided by being on the route of newly constructed railroads. It became a central transportation hub for the region. The Santa Fe Railroad arrived in 1888 and the Kansas City, Mexico, and Orient Railway in 1909.

The discovery of oil and gas, the influx of light manufacturing, the development of a communications center, the establishment and growth of Angelo State University, and the growth of the medical community provided diversification to a growing community. Today, this city of 100,000 is the trade and services hub of a 13-county area, supported by agriculture, manufacturing, education, business and health services, military, tourism, and retirement.

Block One

Rooted in history including bordellos and booze in the early 1900s, Block One has made a name for itself. Located across the river from Fort Concho,

Block One of San Angelo’s historic Concho Avenue was home to the first merchants in the Concho Valley and the stone buildings they built that still stand tall today. Block One remains a hub for shopping, retail and restaurants to this day. Stop by and shop local at some of the stores or grab a bite to eat while appreciating the unique architectures of Block One.

The Cactus Hotel

The historic 15 story Cactus Hotel remains the tallest building in San Angelo and can be seen for miles on the eastern side of town. The Cactus Hotel was opened by Conrad Hilton in May of 1929, right before the Great Depression, which was not an ideal time to open a grand hotel. By the mid-1930s Hilton was out of the hotel business in San Angelo.

New owners replaced the name “Hilton” on the hotel’s rooftop electric sign with “Hotel Cactus,” The Crystal Ballroom continues to host many of San Angelo’s most important events.

Concho Pearl Statue

From the waters of the North Concho River she rises, arm outstretched, hair flowing back, and neck angled toward the sky as she admires the rare treasure in her hand. Since June 11, 1994, the “Pearl of the Conchos” mermaid has captured the attention of passersby near Celebration Bridge as she holds her open oyster with encased jewel. In her hand is the sculpted Concho Pearl, which can only be found in the fresh waters around San Angelo. Unlike traditional round white pearls, Concho pearls are each different, irregular shapes and come in varying shades of pink and lavender. Concho pearls can be found at several local jewelers in San Angelo and are a beautifully rare treat to behold.

Farmer’s Market

The Concho Valley Farmers Market is a true farmers market, according to Margie Jackson, president of the Concho Valley Farmers Market. "That's what makes us the best farmers market in Texas," she said. "In San Angelo we are all about the produce - not arts and crafts."

The vendors, who come from a 75-mile radius around San Angelo, sell locally grown seasonal fruits, vegetables and plants from 7am until sell out (typically by noon) each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday thereafter until the first fall freeze. There are about 38 booths, but at the peak of summer as many as 60 sellers crowd into the area. Vendors bring a wide variety of items for people to purchase.

“Sometimes we'll get 50 people all looking for tomatoes. Sometimes it's corn or melons they're asking for," Margie said. "Usually we have so much produce we have to pick every other day, so people can find us there every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday."

Customers can often find $1 bundles for bowls and produce. In the fall they have larger $2-$6 bags so that people can "put it up, buy it for canning or freezing or fill their baskets," Margie said. "Around the last part of November, when we know there's a freeze coming, we go out and pick everything clean the bushes off, then sell our produce one last time."

Fort Concho

Experience living history at the oldest site in San Angelo - historic Fort Concho! Established in 1867, along the banks of the Concho River, Fort Concho was built to protect frontier settlements, patrol and map the vast West Texas region and quell hostile threats in the area and served as regimental headquarters for some of the most famous frontier units. Today, Fort Concho National Historic Landmark encompasses most of the former army post and includes 24 original and restored fort structures. Fort Concho is owned and operated by the City of San Angelo.

Displayed in six pools for the public’s enjoyment, the waterlilies are changed annually with flowering season from April through October. In September, during the height of the blooming, the collection is celebrated with the Lily Fest.

Lone Wolf Bridge

Fabricated in 1922, this 152-foot-long pedestrian truss bridge spans the Concho River and has a unique history that can be traced back to the 1880s. Originally built in 1888, the bridge is home to many tales of paranormal activity and unusual occurrences. Theories about the bridge’s haunting range from 1930s flood victims revisiting the bridge to the spirit of a Kiowa/Apache chief whose son was killed in a battle with Fort Concho calvary also haunting the bridge. In more recent times the Lone Wolf Bridge has become home to a seven-foot-tall red metal heart with a keyhole in its center adorned with engraved locks placed by local couples. The piece was donated by Art in Uncommon Places, a local nonprofit dedicated to art.

Mayer Museum

The Angelo State University Mayer Museum enhances the educational experience of students while also engaging the community by interpreting and exhibiting historic, cultural and natural materials that relate to the diversity of the Concho Valley, Texas, and beyond.

Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue

Mark and Amy Meyers started the Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue as a backyard hobby over two decades ago and has turned into the largest rescue of its kind in the world. The Meyers still stay involved in the day-to-day operations of the Rescue but they also manage a large staff that ensure the well-being of the over 3,000 donkeys under their direct care. Under the Meyers’ direction, Peaceful Valley has grown to the largest rescue of its kind with facilities across the United States, but is headquartered right here in San Angelo, Texas. The Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue’s main rescue and rehabilitation facility is located on a 172-acre former dairy in San Angelo and is home to around 1,000 donkeys at any given time.

Sheep Statues

Once known as the "Wool and Mohair Capital of the World," San Angelo has been a top producer of wool since the 1930s. Prior to the drought of 2011 that resulted in a decline in Texas sheep, the Concho Valley produced over 1 million pounds of wool annually. In 2007, local nonprofit Downtown San Angelo, Inc. created the Sheep Spectacular. The Sheep Spectacular serves as an homage to the city’s rich heritage. Rambouillet sheep have become a symbol for San Angelo and now grace businesses across San Angelo in the form of a colorful and creative fiberglass herd, all painted by local artists. Each sheep is unique to the business it is in or around. Along with distinctive colors and patterns, the sheep are also known by their punny names such as Wild ‘n Wooly, Sheep Justice “Ewenice” and My Mail to “Ewe”/Ewe’ve Got Mail.

San Angelo Regional Manufacturer's Alliance (SARMA)

WWW.SARMA.US

The San Angelo Chamber EDD supports specific industry sector recruitment marketing through its regional industrial manufacturer and energy sector advocacy organization – the San Angelo Regional Manufacturers Alliance (SARMA) program. The members of the SARMA provide invaluable industry intelligence to the San Angelo Chamber and COSADC staff by assisting with the mission of growing their enterprises by collabaoration with suppliers and complimentary industrial companies.

The links created by these constant interactions with our industrial community has provided positive results in the form of new jobs, company expansions, capital investment and the development of supply chain transportation and facility infrastructure. The San Angelo Chamber EDD approach to economic development is based on the practice and philosophy of supporting local manufacturing and industrial services first, known within the economic development industry as “economic gardening.” This practice, through our SARMA program, connects the Chamber EDD team with local industry leaders to create pathways to providing solutions to growth challenges. Industry retention and expansion is a primary goal. San Angelo’s legacy and newly recruited industrial enterprises need consistent support with facility upgrades and expansion to meet market demands. The Chamber

directly supports and funds industry training programs through our Cornerstone Fund Program. The combination of these efforts has led to the recruitment of new industrial enterprises, mainly with those operations seeking to join the Economic Clustering effect created by these efforts.

SME Prime Initiative

SME PRIME® Update: The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Education Foundation manages the Partnership Response In Manufacturing Education (PRIME®) program. SME PRIME® builds costeffective and tailored manufacturing/engineering programs in high schools across the country, providing equipment, curriculum, professional development, scholarships and STEM-focused extracurricular activities to students and teachers. PRIME® students receive hands-on training on modern equipment and learn about technology and processes through industry-informed curriculum that is tailored to meet the needs of local manufacturers. PRIME® programs are completely funded by engaged donors. The schools bear no cost. The entire process is done in partnership with donors and educators. The PRIME® approach is collaboration with the school and the manufacturing partners to help the school build a highly tailored program designed with direct input from the companies.

In 2020, stakeholders (Ethicon, Principle LED, COSADC, and the Chamber of Commerce) came together, recognized the value in establishing a PRIME® high school designation in SAISD (Central and Lake View), championed the initiative and

pledged a total of $320,000 in donor funds for the 3-year project. SAISD and WTTC will be the 2nd high school campus in Texas carrying the PRIME® designation.

In the first year (2021), SME conducted regional market research, regional workforce assessments, a donor workforce assessment, developed education Pathway Standards and aligned with State standards, finally culminating with a Curriculum Plan. The curriculum pathways developed for SAISD are Industrial Maintenance and Mechatronics/Robotics (focusing on engineering design). In 2021, SME also procured the first piece of equipment, a SNAP-ON Precision Measurement Instrument Tool Kit. In conjunction with Tooling U-SME, SAISD has initiated a course of instruction that will permit students to be awarded certification in Precision Measurement Instrumentation (PMI). Tooling U-SME is the industry leading provider of training and

workforce development solutions for thousands of companies, providing custom online curriculum aligned with industry certifications and is the provider of SME PRIME® curriculum.

In 2022 and 2023, the 4-year curriculum has been completely delivered, and in fact it actually begins with SAISD 8th grade students. The new equipment delivered includes a state-of-the-art Stratasys F170 3-D Printer and 6 x TETRIX® MAX Dual-Control Robotic kits.

The SME PRIME® program provides a gateway for students to get into the skilled trades and support highly skilled positions at local area and global companies. 89% of graduating SME PRIME® students intend to pursue careers in manufacturing, and 60% of those students intend to pursue post-secondary education in a field directly related to manufacturing. Program measurable deliverables include:

• Equipment, Materials and Supplies

• Curriculum and Certifications

• Professional Development

• Scholarships

The overall success of the program is dependent upon the ongoing partnership between the school and the local employers/donors.

HIGHWAYS

San Angelo is served by three U.S. Highways: 67, 87 and 277. The city is located about 1.5 hours from either I-20 to the north or I-10 to the south. Highway improvement plans could connect San Angelo with those interstates via four lane highways. Super-two highways are also on the regional infrastructure plans. As a member of the Ports-toPlains Alliance, San Angelo is part of a proposed north-south interstate corridor to connect Canada, U.S. and Mexico. The city is also on plans of the

east-west Strategic Gulf Coast Highway, running from Louisiana to El Paso.

AIr

San Angelo Regional Airport - Mathis Field (Airport Code: SJT) is the only commercial airport serving the Concho Valley, with more than 150 aircraft based at Mathis Field. American Airlines (American Eagle) offers with up to five daily flights to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The airport offers free parking and recently underwent a $6.2 million dollar renovation.

RAIL

BNSF Railway, the country’s second largest railroad, provides San Angelo with transcontinental freight service. San Angelo is also corporate headquarters for Texas Pacifico Transportation Ltd., the operator of a 390 mile short line railroad connecting to major U.S. railroads and to Mexico.

SAN ANGELO RAIL PARK

A driver of industrial expansion and new development: The 183-acre San Angelo Rail Port, a multi-modal, international, inland rail port achieved several major milestones in 2021. The port’s rail trackage system was designed and installed along with the electrical power service plan. South Plains Lamesa Railroad (SPLRR) as owner, designer and operator began switching railcars in early 2022 providing a major industrial freight logistics system in San Angelo with direct international interconnections at the new rail bridge at Presidio, Texas, which has been completed. The Port will increase tax revenues to San Angelo and promote new industry development by providing national and international connections for import and export cargos.

INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL FREIGHT CONNECTIONS

The Chamber has worked with Texas Pacifico Railroad (TXPF) throughout 2021 to encourage the opening of the International Rail Bridge at Presidio, Texas on the Mexico US border. The completed rail bridge is expected to open for service within the next year. The TXPF railroad is a Class 3, 391-mile line that runs from Coleman, Texas to Presidio, Texas. The route creates a direct link between the Ferromex rail freight network and the BNSF rail network throughout the United States.

A CENTERPIECE FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT & SUPPLY CHAIN EFFICIENCY

The 183-acre SPLRR San Angelo Rail Port creates a logistics and freight distribution hub serving the agricultural and commercial sectors in the Concho Valley by greatly enhancing efficiencies of large cargo movements and reducing freight costs per ton-mile for our local commodities producers and users. This development will directly impact freight costs reduction and supply chain control for high-volume industries. Rail freight reduces costs between 40% to 70% per ton-mile. These shipping and costs efficiencies translate to increased profit for shippers through logistics cost reduction. The multicommodity rail port serving the San Angelo business community will be a significant enhancement to the regional commodity producers, commodity consumers, energy industries, manufacturing operations and other industrial sectors. The San Angelo Rail Port provides a regional community logistics and distribution center for consumer goods such as shipping containers, bulk agricultural products, chemicals, steel, aggregates and construction materials.

Agriculture

Agriculture, whether it is raising cotton, wheat or grain sorghum, cattle, sheep or goats, developed as an economic mainstay for the Concho Valley with the founding of San Angelo in 1867. Since then, the agriculture industry has changed with the addition of processing, storage and distribution facilities, vertical supply channels, implement dealers and specialized crop and livestock production, marketing and financing consultants and other service providers. All these entities have changed and evolved with the dramatic and rapid adoption of new technologies, changing consumer preferences and challenging economic conditions.

Though the Concho Valley is considered the sheep and goat capital of the U.S., cow-calf and stocker operations generate considerably more revenue for the Concho Valley. Beef production is second only to cotton production with $128.1 million in annual sales in the Concho Valley.

Collectively, livestock operations generate another $202.7 million in annual sales and $284.4 million in regional economic output. Texas is the largest sheep producer in the U.S. with 15% of the domestic ewe flock (445,000 head). Only California, Wyoming and Utah have more sheep than the 13 counties that comprise the Concho Valley.

GOODFELLOW Air Force Base

Goodfellow Air Force Base, located in San Angelo, is home to the 17th Training Wing. Its mission is to Train, Transform and Empower joint and coalition warriors. Goodfellow AFB also supports linguist training in the 517th Training Group, located at the Presidio of Monterey in California. Goodfellow AFB contributed $4.7 billion to the Texas economy in 2021 and provided employment for 9,690 personnel with a gross domestic product of $2.8 billion and a disposable personal income of $1.5 billion.

Back before Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt began a program of preparedness that included the construction of facilities dedicated to advanced air training. Civic leaders from San Angelo immediately recommended their community to the War Department. A generous offer of electrical service, railroad spur, sewer system and a 50-year lease on 640 acres at $1 per year easily decided the issue.

On 1 July 1993, the 17th Training Wing was activated at Goodfellow. With the change in name came a marked diversification and increase in mission as the base realignment and closure process brought special instruments training and fire protection training to the base. To support the increased training load, Goodfellow underwent extensive modernization and growth entering the 21st century as one of the most modern Air Force installations.

26 OASIS MAGAZINE

The base is vital to and greatly beloved by area residents and strongly contributes to San Angelo's quality of life. These brave men and women help make San Angelo and the world a better place to live! At any given time, there are over 7,000 military, civilians and their family members on the installation that also engage in our schools, neighborhoods, congregations and businesses.

THE FIRST GOODFELLOW 1ST LT. JOHN J. GOODFELLOW, JR.

MAY 17, 1895 - SEPTEMBER 14, 1918

After graduating from San Angelo High School in 1913, where he played football and the trombone, John Goodfellow, Jr. took a job with the Lone Star Gas Company in Fort Worth. He then studied civil engineering at The University of Texas.

He left to become an infantry officer but soon developed an interest in aviation. Graduating ground school in Austin and flying school in San Diego, CA, Goodfellow was commissioned as a second lieutenant in February 1918 and shipped immediately to England as an observation pilot with the 24th Aero Squadron.

On July 22nd his squadron transferred to France. Following additional training at St. Maixent and Ourches, the squadron attached to the First Army Observation Group at Gondreville on August 22nd in preparation for a major American offensive.

The offensive commenced on September 12th with the objective of reducing the German salient near St. Mihiel in N.E. France. On the 12th and 13th, the squadron conducted visual reconnaissance in the area of Thiaucourt, reporting the successful progress of the attack. Additional sorties on the 14th kept the German front under constant observation while six missions attempted deep reconnaissance of German movements behind the front, near Metz.

Goodfellow and his observer, 1st Lt. Elliot M. Durant, Jr., failed to return after one of these deep reconnaissance missions. According to one eyewitness, at least five enemy aircraft engaged Goodfellow’s Salmson 2A-2 reconnaissance plane, shooting away one wing and downing the aircraft after a furious dogfight. Three days later, Goodfellow’s remains were recovered at the crash site and later interred at the St. Mihiel American Military Cemetery near Nancy, France.

Similarly, the cost of housing is significantly below the US average. The median home price in San Angelo is about $160,000.

# 1 MOST AFFORDABLE PLACE TO LIVE IN TEXAS

From bustling cities like Houston, Dallas and Austin with their vibrant arts, music and culinary scenes, to the natural beauty of Big Bend National Park and the Gulf Coast beaches, Texas offers a diverse range of experience and activities for anyone living in the state. If you’re considering

If that price doesn’t fit into your budget, don’t worry. San Angelo has topped Redfin's list of the 14 of the most affordable places to live in Texas. With a median home sale price of $165,000, San Angelo was named the most affordable place to live in Texas according to Redfin.com in July 2023.

in America’s most expensive cities. If you plan on relying on just your Social Security benefits to get by – and you still want to enjoy your golden years – you’ll have to find cities that remain relatively affordable while still scoring highly in terms of livability.

This is the reason why GOBankingRates compiled a list of the 15 best cities to live on only a Social Security check. The study factored in the median onebedroom rent, livability score and overall cost of living of the largest cities in the U.S. to determine which ones were the most affordable for those living solely on a Social Security benefit. San Angelo actually has the highest one-bedroom rent of any city on the list, at $848.60. However, the city scores highly because its overall cost of living still remains nearly 20% below the national average. San Angelo also boasts the second-highest livability score of the top 15 cities.

What Residents Say Discov

"Amazing place, great for raising kids, awesome place to relax in and bring your family for a nice place to settle down."

- Current Resident

" San Angelo Texas is in a region of West Texas known as “Last Verde” or last green before entering the desert oil fields of the permian basin. The city has a military prescience, Goodfellow AFB as well as a abundance of large medical facilities operated by Shannon Medical throughout the city limits. The people, mostly born and raised there, are extremely friendly polite and warm. This was a chosen place for myself as an implant not being originally from San Angelo. I served in the U.S. Army for 20 plus years and was medically retired due to combat injuries sustained during my service in support of the Global War on Terror (GWOT). The atmosphere, calmness of the city and easy laid back lifestyle makes it an oasis for myself in living my life after being a soldier."

- Current Resident

" I have lived in many different cities, big and small, and I am proud to say that San Angelo is by far my favorite! It is the perfect place to raise a family. The town is not too big. but just the right size. We are known as a military town, but better known as a retirement community. This community is well balanced with multiple college campuses and locally owned business. Furthermore, being located in West Texas we have many oil field job opportunities for the working man. I have lived here for 9 years now and I intend to establish my career and family here as well. Anyone who experiences San Angelo is never disappointed!"

- Current Resident

"Great city! People are friendly, and the weather is outstanding. The cost of living is great. The traffic is minimal compared to other cities in Texas."

When someone you love struggles with dementia, Parkinson’s or another form of cognitive or physical impairment, it can be a tremendous challenge to communicate and find ways to help him or her discover pleasure in the world. Personalized music can bridge the gap and enable you to reconnect with one another.

Grounded in extensive neuroscience research, our work with hundreds of individuals in care facilities has shown that many people benefit profoundly from hearing their favorite songs that tap fond memories. Here are some outcomes you or your loved one may experience:

Someone who has been silent or less communicative may begin to talk and become more social.

Someone who feels sad or depressed may feel happier.

Someone who has been less mobile may become more physically active.

Each Individual’s response is unique, but chances are good that he or she will have more pleasure in life again and that you will gain a peaceful, relaxing way to renew your friendship.

Music & Memory is all about bringing joy into the lives of people suffering from forms of dementia and a wide range of cognitive and physical impairments.

SAMFA.ORG

At the center of arts activity and education is the award-winning San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts (SAMFA). Housed in a distinctive building with a curved roof, the museum was built in 1999 from local materials such as limestone, Texas mesquite and native Texas red clay blocks.

The has held over 350 exhibits and has a rapidly growing collection of contemporary ceramics, with a competition cited by Ceramics Monthly as “the premier clay show in America.” The outdoor sculpture garden, the EnPleinAirTEXAS event, even yoga with wine classes are just some of the inventive, exciting opportunities SAMFA creates.

The educational programs bring 33,000 children to the museum annually. In addition, there’s Art

Thursday in the Education Studio, summer art camps, Family Day, the Mommy and Me blog that suggests at-home art projects and Project Starbase with Goodfellow Air Force Base.

Near the museum, Gallery Verde has been restored from the early 1920s dilapidated building to an artist gallery for individuals, groups and contemporary collections. Next to it, Coop Gallery is for emerging and professional artists to show their work. Taylor said, “We want to encourage artists to try new things. Installation, performance, new media and traditional processes are all welcome in the Coop. The space is limited only by your imagination!”

Café Museo is the earliest stage of a funky, fun, full-service restaurant in the service bay of a 1920s gas station. Food trucks operate from the Café Museo location on a regular basis. Caseta is the Center for the Advancement and Study of Early Texas Art in Gallery Verde to promote the preservation, study and appreciation of early Texas visual art and its history.

The Trolley is a cooperative venture of Downtown San Angelo, Inc. and the museum. It is free and runs every third Thursday of the month for the Downtown San Angelo & Cultural Arts District Downtown Stroll.

SCULPTURES & SUNKEN GARDEN PARK

RAILWAY MUSEUM OF SAN ANGELO

SANANGELORAILWAY.ORG

While trains are no longer a common sight in San Angelo, the city owes much of its early history to the railroad. In 1888 the Santa Fe Railway company brought much needed railway access to San Angelo, providing a gateway for supplies, livestock, and oil to flow in and out of the region. Without the influence of the railway, it is safe to say that San Angelo would not be what it is today. The Santa Fe Depot now serves as a railway museum that is open to the public on Saturdays. The Railway Museum of San Angelo has several exhibits on display including the depot itself, a decommissioned train engine, railroad artifacts detailing over a century of history, model railroad displays and a photo gallery.
