Welcome to Terrell County and Sanderson - the "Cactus Capital of
Texas." Residents and officials alike strive to keep our existing
quality of life and provide amenities and services that make Sanderson
a wonderfully friendly place to visit.
Sanderson is the County Seat with a population currently of about 900.
There are only 1,000 in the entire county. Dryden, 20 miles east, is
the only other town in the county. About ten souls - plus a few goats
and sheep - currently live there. Sanderson is approximately 3,000
feet above sea level. It is only 25-miles north of the U.S./Mexico
border - although the nearest "legal" crossing is at Del Rio, 120
miles east. The town of Sanderson lies between beautiful canyons and
enjoys a wonderful climate year-round. We have an exemplary public
school, low crime and a low cost of living. And it's very quiet.
The native Apaches were one of the first peoples to inhabit Terrell
County. By the time the railroad came through this area in the late
19th century, they had mostly been driven away by the U.S. Army forces
stationed at Fort Lancaster to the northeast and Fort Davis to the
There are still many sites in the county that show evidence of these
wonderful Native American tribes and their daily life. Pictographs,
arrowheads and grind-holes can still be seen. Meyers Spring is one of
the best-known pictograph sites in the area. It is currently a
National Heritage Site.
Railroad surveyors reached what we now know as Sanderson in 1881. It
was originally called Strobridge after the president of the then
railroad construction company. In this harsh and desolate canyon
country, there were only early sheep and cattle ranchers. But with the
combination of the railroad and the early the sheep and cattle
industries, Sanderson thrived for a time.
Terrell County was created by the Texas Legislature in 1905. About
1,500,000 acres of land was sectioned off from Pecos County.
The population decline began after the Interstate Highway 10 was
built. Prior to that, U.S. Highway 90 was the main route to points
east and west. In 1965, a devastating flood took 27 lives. Homes and
buildings were destroyed or damaged and even highway bridges and the
railroad suffered major damage. The town slowly recovered after the
tragic loss but the population did not. The Southern Pacific railroad
moved the crew-base from the Sanderson terminal in 1995 and this took
many families out of Sanderson.
The number of large ranches have also since declined. The primary land
use still is ranching but many ranchers have found new revenue sources
from recreation and hunting. The County and School district are the
employers. The Border Patrol is expanding its operations and this
means that more people and families are moving in. Tourism is on the
increase, which adds enormously to the economy.
If you are thinking about moving from the big city and enjoying a
change of pace - almost a return to the lifestyle of the 1950's -
consider moving to Sanderson. We always welcome guests and travelers
