LIVING IN EDEN

Eden is a scenic transition of West Texas ranching, fragrant wildflowers, breath-taking sunsets and some of the best hunting to be found in Texas. Fishing and boating are within 30 miles and Concho Springs Golf Course, one of Texas’ most well maintained 9-hole golf courses, is located just south of the city. The Historic City Square boasts a unique shopping experience and includes a state-of-the-art library and a museum highlighting the rich history of Eden and Concho County.

Highway 83 stretches from Westhope, North Dakota at the Canadian border to Brownsville, Texas at the Veteran's International Bridge on the Mexican border. Highway 87 stretches from Havre, Montana to Port Lavaca, Texas. Both are key components in the NAFTA Transportation Network and provide direct access to Interstates 10 and 20 as well as the Ports-to-Plains Corridor just 45 miles west.
