Now on I-10 in far West Texas, town grew at juncture of the nation's second transcontinental rail route in 1881 (Southern Pacific and Texas & Pacific). Historical marker downtown--at the corner of Sierra Blanca Avenue and U.S. 80--commemorates the event. Town named for Sierra Blanca Mountain (6,950 feet) to the northwest.
