History

Eagle Pass Today

Eagle Pass City Hall today is located near the base of the International Bridge. Across from City Hall is a small monument adjacent to a gazebo which commemorates the police officers of Eagle Pass and surrounding communities who have died in the line of duty. Much of the small business growth of the new century has been toward the southern portion of the city off FM 375, also known as Bibb Street.

Sportsmen enjoy fishing for the large Rio Grande catfish; nationally known Lake Amistad in Del Rio, Texas is nearby (bass fish); and hunting for white-tailed deer and upland game birds. Eight miles south of Eagle Pass is the 125-acre (0.51 km²) reservation for the Kickapoo Indians. The tribe operates the Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino along with restaurants.

United Airlines serves the Eagle Pass/ Piedras Negras, Mexico area via Del Rio International Airport in Del Rio, Texas.
