History An Oasis on the West Texas Prairie N

o one is certain who was first to come upon the “big spring” that later gave the town its name. It sure was visited by prehistoric creatures seeking water in the arid region and later by hunters with pointed sticks and crude stone tools and primitive Indians following herds of bison used for food, clothing and shelter. Cabeza de Vaca may have been the first white man to look upon the spring, which was chronicled in his journals of his journey in 1535. Capt. Randolph Marcy chronicled his visit to the spring in October 1849 as he sought to establish a leg of a transcontinental trail. Marcy noted that the spring appeared to be a favorite place of the Comanche Indians. The spring subsequently became the base for many army expeditions to the new territory and remained the home of several Indian tribes. Many skirmishes between

the two were recorded by several army officers, including Col. Robert E. Lee, in 1856, who later became commander in chief of the Confederate forces. The Texas & Pacific Railroad named the little village a division point between Ft. Worth and El Paso, from which water was supplied from the spring. This meant jobs for shops and road crews and corresponding growth and stability for the new town. By 1881 the rail had reached Big Spring and beyond, creating a sustainable economic base. Big Spring flourished, local county government was established, businesses sprang up, and farming and ranching operations were established all in a short period beginning in the early 1880s. Big Spring’s next big influence came with the discovery of oil in the county. In 1926 the

Otis Chalk No. 1 came in, after several earlier attempts to find oil, and the boom was on. Many of the early wells produced 3,000 to 4,000 barrels of oil a day. Hundreds of workers came to the area for work, and new oil-related businesses sprang up, along with refining. Today oil, rail, farming and ranching still provide the economic base for the community, and Big Spring remains poised for the next influence, which is wind energy. Big Spring’s unique topography is a mixture of wide-open plains mixed with the convergence of the northern limit of the Edwards Plateau and the southernmost hills of the Caprock. Big Spring is nestled in a gorge between two high foothills, creating beautiful vistas and an oasis on the West Texas prairie.

Business & Industry Building a Strong Community

B

ig Spring is located at the crossroads of U.S. Interstate Highway 20, State Highway 87, State Highway 350 and State Highway 176 in West Texas. Big Spring has a diverse and varied economy. Oil and gas production became a major economic force in the early 1900s and continues today. Present day, the economy has grow to include refining, manufacturing, wind energy production, agriculture, transportation, governmental services and a broad range of health care services.

Stre ng t hs & Ch a ll enges Big Spring EDC works to promote the current competitive strengths of the City of Big Spring and Howard County and to take advantage of

Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce

competitive challenges. Big Spring EDC strongly markets the following Big Spring attributes:

Diverse Economy Businesses in Big Spring and Howard County include health care, oil and gas, wind energy production, and agriculture. With such a diverse economy, Big Spring has been able to weather any economic downturn.

Transportation Big Spring is well connected by highway, air and rail service. The city is located at the crossroads of West Texas and is easily accessible from any direction, making it part of the Ports to Plains Region. Along with highway access, Big Spring is east–west rail serviced by Union Pacific Railroad.

The city also has McMahon/Wrinkle Airport located in Big Spring, as well as an International Airport only 60 miles to the west.

Community Networking Big Spring and Howard County are fortunate to have a progressive leadership with excellent cooperation among the government, educational institutions and the citizenry, thus encouraging and allowing organizations to work to streamline the process of starting or expanding a business.

Quality of Life Big Spring is the home of caring residents, friendly families, beautiful landscapes, a comfortable climate and a multitude of cultural, sporting


and recreational events. The city has recently been designated as a Certified Retirement Community by the Texas Department of Agriculture and is a safe oasis to call home. Big Spring has struggled with the accessibility of skilled labor. With the educational support of Howard College and its vocational and technical training courses, we are developing a strong foundation for highly skilled labor, which will provide for a more skilled workforce for Big Spring.

Big Spring EDC’s S i x T a r g e t I n dustr i es Big Spring has the ability to target specific industries, activities and opportunities on which to focus recruitment and retention efforts. Matching location strengths to industry requirements and to industry demand patterns is critical in target industry identification and is an essential component of an effective development strategy. These defined industries are a likely match for the relocation or expansion of primary jobs in Big Spring.

Oil and Gas Energy West Texas and Howard County in particular have a strong tradition of oil and gas exploration and production. Oil, originally discovered here in 1926, has been a primary industry in the area and a major contributor to the local economic base. Today Big Spring is the home of one of the largest inland refineries in the United States and is a hub for oil and gas processing and distribution. Drilling, refining, carbon black production, oil well servicing, oil field supply and oil field equipment manufacturing represent a significant employment base for the area. Big Spring will continue to have a strong oil-related base, and efforts will continue to develop and retain oilrelated industry.

Transportation and Distribution Big Spring is situated at the “Crossroads of West Texas,” making it a natural transportation and distribution hub. Interstate Highway 20 is the major east–west artery, and Texas Highway 87 the major north–south artery. Big Spring is located on the Ports-to-Plains Corridor, linking Mexico with Canada, a major transportation path for good and services manufactured or grown in the Midwest and distributed worldwide. Big Spring is the former home of Webb Air Force Base and boasts an 8,800-foot runway capable of landing 737-class aircraft, a new state-of-the-art air terminal, and facilities that lend themselves to national and global shipping and distribution. Big Spring is serviced by Union Pacific Railroad on their primary

10

Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce


east–west track, with thousands of railcars passing through Big Spring every day. These assets make Big Spring ideal for transportation distribution operations and a focus for the EDC to develop logistic operations.

Agriculture Before oil and gas, and before wind energy, farming and ranching were the economic engines of West Texas and Big Spring. Cattle and cotton production continue to have a significant impact on the local economy. Recently, Big Spring was selected by a major cotton storage distribution co-op to warehouse and market cotton nationally and internationally. BSEDC understands the importance of agricultural production not only locally, but nationally, and places a high priority on developing agriculture-related industry, manufacturing and distribution.

Renewable Energy Big Spring was one of the first sites for wind energy production in the central United States.

11


Some 12 years ago an over 34MW project was completed, and in 2008 another 250MW of capacity was added, with future projects being discussed. Utility-scale solar projects are now being planned for possible location in the Big Spring area. These projects are opening new doors for supply chain industries to locate in our region. Training programs for renewable energy jobs are now offered at the community college and high schools. This new industry diversifies the economic base and offers many new areas for job development and growth.

Health Care Big Spring has long had the reputation as being a center for health care in West Texas, with facilities including a 150-bed private hospital serving the general public, a Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center, a State mental health facility and a Texas State Veterans Home. Big Spring is also home to one of the premier rehabilitation facilities in West Texas, providing physical therapy, occupational therapy, cardiac rehabilitation, audiology and wellness programs, along with a multitude of other services.

For well over a century Big Spring ISD has worked diligently to see that the 3,800 students in the community have been provided with the highest quality education. Every attempt is continuously made to educate the “whole child,” going far beyond the mere basics. Well-rounded students who become contributing members of society take every opportunity to participate in the myriad of activities offered in the school system and community, from fine arts to career and technical training.  Furthermore, the use of technology is an important tool being utilized to further education. High school students are encouraged to take college-level courses (dual credit) while enrolled in Big Spring High School. This effort is made infinitely more accessible due to the presence of Howard College here in Big Spring. Many graduate from high school with over 30 hours of college credit, which will give them the upper hand as incoming college students. 

The support of the community and the school district is virtually unmatched anywhere in the area. Four new elementary schools were completed in 2012: Moss Elementary, Marcy Elementary, Washington Elementary and Goliad Intermediate.

Big Spring State Hospital is a 200-bed psychiatric hospital providing hospitalization for people 18 years of age and older with psychiatric illnesses in a 58-county area in West Texas and the Texas South Plains, which includes the major metropolitan areas of Lubbock, Big Spring, Abilene, Midland, Odessa and San Angelo. The hospital’s mission is to promote recovery from mental illness and a rapid return to community life by providing treatment, education and hope in a safe and supportive environment.

16

Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce

The hospital was founded in 1938 and employs more than 600 employees, making it one of Big Spring’s largest employers. Many employment opportunities exist at Big Spring State Hospital, which may include stipends for nursing students, short-term housing and stateprovided car pools from outlying towns. Physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, direct care workers, social workers and nutritionists care for the patients when they are referred to the hospital for extensive psychiatric care. Patients are cared for in various hospital units, depending on the severity of their illness or their specific needs. Comprehensive treatment teams look after each patient and prepare them for life in the

community. Big Spring State Hospital believes patients can achieve their optimum level of wellness by being cared for in the least restrictive environment possible. Presently the emphasis is placed on quality treatment to shorten the period of illness, to rehabilitate, and to return the patient to the community as quickly as possible. In order to do this, treatment modalities have expanded to include a full range of rehabilitation therapies, education, individual and group psychotherapy, and family intervention as an adjunct to medication. Patients who come to the hospital are treated not only for their psychiatric problems, but also for any problem needing medical attention.


The hospital embraces a holistic approach within the least restrictive environment, encouraging physical and mental wellness through a variety of therapeutic activities. Recreation therapists focus on offering many fitness opportunities that promote physical wellness in an enjoyable and fun environment. Skills training groups use this time to engage patients in leisure activities and to identify community resources and recreational opportunities for patients to engage in once they return to the community. The hospital offers families visiting loved ones the use of the Family Visitation Center and the Don and Marilyn Newsom Family Lodge, which are operated by the Volunteer Services Council — one of Big Spring’s largest volunteer organizations. Volunteers provide special resources, including clothing and gifts for special occasions. The Fashion Salon provides clothing for patients while they are hospitalized, allowing them to shop in a boutique setting for articles of clothing. The Chaplain coordinates services in the Tollett All-Faith Chapel and participates with community ministerial organizations to provide information to the community church leadership toward understanding the mission of the state hospital and in gaining knowledge of the dynamics of mental illness.

tradition of caring for the health care needs of the Howard County community, working hard every day to provide care that not only meets, but exceeds, patients’ expectations for their hospital experience. We are committed to making SMMC your hospital of choice. While we strive to offer medical innovations, we know that what patients remember is not technology, but the personal touch of our staff. As part of our goal to exceed patients’ expectations of care, we continue to focus on initiatives like hourly rounding — where we check on every patient, every hour, to make sure their needs are taken care of. Additionally, we call patients after they leave the Emergency Department to make sure they understood discharge instructions and to see if they have comments that will help us improve the care we provide.

Our mission of compassionate care guides not only our approach to patient care, but also our efforts to upgrade our facilities and to expand hospital services and technology. In 2010, we completely renovated our Medical/Surgical Patient Services floor, updated patient rooms in our Women’s Services area, purchased new sleep chairs for patient rooms, and resurfaced our north and south parking lots. In late October, general surgeon Ladd Hoffman, M.D., began offering a new incisionless heartburn surgery that has already improved the quality of life for more than a half dozen local people.

Recreation & Tourism

Big Sky — Big Heart — Big Spring.

A

trip to Big Spring can be as action-packed or low-key as you wish; with so much to see and do, the choice is yours! Big Spring is full of opportunities for entertainment and fun — everything from wonderful parks and excellent sporting venues to museums and historical sites.

Parks Natural beauty characterizes the area, and numerous parks let visitors take full advantage.

Comanche Trail Park Comanche Trail Park, home of the city’s namesake (The Big Spring), is ideal for active types with opportunities for hiking, biking, picnicking, tennis and fishing. The park is home to the Comanche Trail Municipal Golf Course, an 18-hole course tucked against the hills on the south end of Big Spring. The Comanche Trail Municipal Golf Course is the only rolling hills golf course in West Texas. It features 6,576 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The park also has a one-of-a-kind 36-hole disc golf course that draws players from all around the region.

Comanche Trail Park also has great opportunities for kids at the beautiful Russ McEwen Family Aquatic Center and the Kids Zone Playground.

Roy Anderson Sports Complex The Roy Anderson Sports Complex has recently been renovated and expanded and is a fantastic addition to the City of Big Spring Parks Department. It provides a recreational sports facility to the citizens and includes seven softball fields, two baseball fields, five soccer fields, two football fields and one practice field. New concession stands, restrooms, playground and picnic tables add to the improvement of the facility.

Big Spring State Park The Big Spring State Park spans 382 acres within the city limits of Big Spring in Howard County. Dramatic views from the CCC-built 3-mile loop road are one of the featured attractions of the park. Early morning or sunset, joggers, walkers and cyclists circle the loop, enjoying these views as they exercise. Many of the area’s numerous and varied bird species can also be observed at the park. Other activities include picnicking, stargazing, nature study and sightseeing.


Moss Creek Lake Moss Creek Lake was constructed in 1938 by the City of Big Spring with help from the Army Corp of Engineers. The city is proud to offer approximately 640 acres for recreational use. There are 26 sheltered campsites and pavilions for reservations. Recent additions include a playground, beach swimming area and ATV Trails.

Mus eum s & His t o r i c a l S i t es The Heritage Museum History buffs will appreciate The Heritage Museum, home of displays depicting the community’s cultural and historical significance. The Heritage Museum, once the home to pioneer Dora Roberts, was organized in 1971. Renovations to the building were completed in 1992. The museum’s permanent exhibits tell the story of Big Spring’s diverse history. These informative displays range from early Native American life to the oil industry in West Texas. The temporary exhibit gallery displays the work of local artists and traveling exhibits from around the nation.

The Potton House This residence will be a lasting tribute to Big Spring’s turn-of-the-century architecture. The house was built in 1901 as an investment by Mr. Joseph Potton and was leased until his retirement in 1912. The house was kept in and maintained by the family until 1975, when it was purchased with a grant from the Dora Roberts Foundation by the City of Big Spring.

Hangar 25 Air Museum

Municipal Auditorium

The Hangar 25 Air Museum is a restored World War II flight hangar with a remarkable collection of Big Spring Bombardier School and Webb Air Force Bases exhibits. It is unique in its construction, history and appeal. From the moment you drive up to the front of this impressive red brick structure, set against a massive Texas sky, the experience begins.

The historic Big Spring Municipal Auditorium was built in 1932 and is a center for cultural activity both past and present. The auditorium seats 1,412 people. Famous personalities from the past, including Elvis Presley, Wayne Newton and Hank Williams Jr., have performed in the auditorium. It is currently the home of the Big Spring Symphony Orchestra.

Vietnam Memorial

Hotel Settles

The Big Spring Vietnam Memorial, dedicated in 1991, stands in memory of those killed in action during the Vietnam War. A UH-1 Huey Helicopter, F-4E Phantom II Jet, Abrams Tank and Cobra Helicopter are displayed. The memorial is located on the grounds of the former Webb Air Force Base.

Sitting on what once was railroad property, the corner of 3rd Street and Runnels has been through many changes over the years. During the oil boom of the late 1920s W.R. Settles bought the property and began the construction of the historic Hotel Settles. The cost of original construction was reported to be $500,000 — a fortune in those days. Opening in October 1930 to great fanfare and support by the local community, the Settles Hotel was often compared to the finest hotels of its day. In its prime, the Settles hosted dignitaries and celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Lawrence Welk, Herbert Hoover and many others. Purchased by a hometown businessman in 2007, the Hotel Settles has undergone extensive renovations. The hotel features historic and luxury hotel rooms, retail shopping, and restaurant and meeting facilities.

E v e n ts In addition to its many parks and historical sites, Big Spring is home to many events that provide entertainment to visitors throughout the year. Enjoy the Big Spring Symphony at the park’s limestone amphitheater at the annual Pops in the Park, or be one of 10,000 attendees at the popular Comanche Trail Festival of Lights

The annual Comanche Warrior Triathlon is held each year in Comanche Trail Park. Athletes from all over the country come to participate.

Meet the Neighbors

Coahom a Coahoma — “Small in Number … Tradition is rich in the tiny town of Coahoma, located on Interstate 20, 10 miles northeast of Big Spring in east central Howard County. Coahoma took its name from an Indian word meaning “signal,” from a nearby hill that is called Signal Mountain. After the 1881 arrival of the Texas and Pacific Railway in the area, Coahoma grew into a retail trade center and shipping point. The residents built the first school in 1891. By the time its second school was built in 1904, the town had a post office. Machinery and oilfield supplies became the most important goods distributed from Coahoma after the major oil strike of 1926. In 1928 the town had 600 residents, and its school district served 205 pupils. Between 1936 and 1956 the community’s population rose from 620 to 802, and the number of commercially rated businesses went from 18 to 23. Coahoma has a strong farming and ranching heritage, as well. To date the population of Coahoma is 817, and the town is still home to several businesses, including a bank. Coahoma was once the home of one of the greatest high school and college football coaches, Spike Dykes, who coached at Texas Tech, the University of Texas, Baylor University and Texas A&M. He coached in Coahoma in the ’60s, leading them to the state finals in Austin. The Athletic Department at Coahoma School is very competitive, offering girls’ and boys’ basketball, track, tennis, powerlifting and golf, as well as football, baseball and softball. The softball program has a rich tradition, having claimed a state title in 1998 and making numerous return trips to the state tournament in following years. Coahoma ISD has three campuses, including elementary (Pre-K through fifth grade), Robert Ethridge Junior High (grades six through eight) and the high school (grades nine through 12). With small class sizes and low student-to-teacher ratios, each campus offers individual attention for the students to help ensure academic success for all. Legendary rodeo clown of more than 35 years, Quail Dobbs, makes his home in Coahoma. Dobbs was instrumental in starting the historic Kindergarten Rodeo in 1987. The annual event honors age-old rodeo traditions and events such as barrel racing, bull riding and calf roping, with

students participating on handmade stick horses. No rodeo event would be complete without a rodeo queen and her court as well as the famous rodeo clowns, led by Dobbs himself.

… Coahoma — BIG in Pride!!”

F o r sa n Forsan — “Built on Energy, Education and Family” The community of Forsan is located in south Howard County, approximately 12 miles from Big Spring. According to a Big Spring Herald article dated January 26, 1986, Forsan was named for the four crude-producing sands at its location. Oil discoveries in 1919 and again in 1926 created this boomtown. The population grew to about 4,000 people at one point and boasted stores, filling stations, hotels, a theater, two dance halls and several churches. Today, the community of Forsan is made up of several oil-field-related businesses, the “Four Sands Café,” Forsan Baptist Church, Forsan Jr./ Sr. High, city offices, the volunteer fire station and a post office. The population is close to 200. The Jr./Sr. High hosts athletic and academic events as well as plays and concerts that bring many people to this small community. A recent competition from the Rural Community College Initiative (RCCI) developed the mantra, “Forsan: Built on Energy, Education and Family,” which aptly sums up this small but proud community.
