The county of Pecos, located in the south-western region of the Texas state, was established in 1871 and organized in 1875. It is the second-largest county in the state and it was named after the Pecos River which flows along the county’s boundary. This county has been economically dependent on its farming, ranching, petroleum, natural gas, and tourism industries; cotton, cattle, hogs, angora goats, and vegetables were its major agricultural products. It also features some interesting sites like the West of The Pecos Museum, Memory Lane Car Museum, and the Buck Jackson Arena. Furthermore, barbecues, tacos, tamales, and southern style fried chicken are the county’s specialties but Chinese food, pizzas, and other Tex-Mex food are also being served in this county.
