Historic Eagle Pass
As the oldest U.S. settlement on the Rio Grande, Eagle Pass dates to the 1840s when the Texas militia made camp at the site throughout the Mexican-American War. Fort Duncan, on the city's southwest side, first appeared in 1849 and played an important role in the American Civil War. Several historic buildings still stand at Fort Duncan Park, including the old headquarters, which is now the Fort Duncan Museum. The community honors its heritage through the preservation of many historic downtown landmarks as well, including the 1885 Maverick County Courthouse and the Renaissance revival-style former U.S. Post Office, now the main branch library.
Eagle Pass City Parks
With the natural splendor of the Rio Grande River running nearby, and the small, but beautiful Maverick County Lake just south of East Main Street, Eagle Pass has plentiful fly fishing, hiking, and other outdoor activities, but the city also maintains more than 170 acres of public recreation and green spaces in its 16 city parks. Arroyo Park's inviting, historic design, terraced landscape, and leisurely Creek Walk make it ideal for an afternoon picnic, and the amphitheater occasionally hosts concerts, music festivals, and other events. Check out the events at San Juan Plaza, too, including the popular Christmas and Mexican Independence Day festivals.
