The Chisholm trail was one of the most known cattledriving trails in the United States and before long cattle drives were replaced by railroads hauling cattle and other sundries all of the nation. And as a reminder of the days of the cattle drive Abiline, TX was named for the endpoint of the Chisholm Trail: Abilene, KS. In 1882
Abilene was incorporated and people were rushing to claim land in the newly established township and the population continued to grow. By 1923 three universities found a place in Abilene’s makeup; Abilene Christian University, Hardin-Simmons University, and McMurry College.
In the 1950’s Abilene itself raised money to buy land and did so in the hopes that an Air Force Base would be established there and Dyess Air Force Base is still there today and serving as the cities largest employer. In 1982, Abilene began a downtown revitalization project and became one of the first cities in the U.S. Leading it into a huge period of economic and residential growth.
