Uvalde sits at the crossroads of the country. U. S. Highways 83 and 90 link Canada, Mexico, Florida and California to all points in-between. But then again, Uvalde has always been at the crossroads with Spanish roads running from Mexico to San Antonio and Native American trails through the hills and along our rivers. This has given us an eclectic mix of Spanish, Mexican, Anglo and German culture. Our diverse ecology of brush country and hill country has attracted farmers, ranchers and hunters as well as created thriving mining and tourism industries. Our idyllic weather brought us a World War II training field that still thrives as our municipal airport, and is home to innovative aviation companies.
Uvalde was the iconic Texas of western movies, with cowboys, outlaws and saloons softened by the civility of four beautiful tree shaded plazas and an elegant 1891 opera house in our historic downtown. But never one to dwell on the past, Uvalde’s downtown shows the progress of over 160 years of commerce. Buildings range from 1890s Victorian to Mid-20th Century. This bustling county seat is a regional hub that serves a retail trade area of over 40,000 while still having friendly small town charm.
We dream big in Uvalde and our citizens have gone on to fame in many fields including politics, music, cinema, professional sports and train robbery. We hope you will select one of our downtown buildings to make your dreams come true.
