Odessa is known for its cowboy culture and the legion of oil rigs that stand on top of dusty plains. The city was established in 1881 as an important railroad stop for the Texas and Pacific Railway, and it didn’t take long for it to develop into a major cattle shipping center. However, its real boom came in 1926, when the discovery of oil would change Odessa from a ranching and shipping community to an industrial one. Since then, it has grown to being a lively town that is part of the thriving Midland-Odessa area. (Credit:
