Established in 1882 and named for Frederick Ede, upon whose land the town was platted, Eden is 19 miles east of the geodetic center of Texas. Markers in town honor local sons: Gen. Ira C. Eaker, aviator in World War I, who pioneered in-flight refueling technology and commanded Eighth Army Air Force in World War II; and Gen. Earl Rudder, leader of Army Rangers who scaled 100-foot cliffs and silenced German artillery during the World War II D-Day invasion. A shady town square features shops, antique malls, a museum and a modern library. Visitors can also find a municipal golf course, deer and turkey hunting, and nearby O.H. Ivie Reservoir for fishing and boating.
