Additional Details:
In its early days Pecos was a metropolis of the desert cow country. Hitching rails lined the streets and the clatter of boot heels on the board-walks mingled with the musical jingle of spurs. The early town knew the presence of "Billy-The-Kid" and others of his kind. One of the country's earliest versions of the popular western spectacle "The Rodeo" as today practiced is credited to Pecos. The first known Texas rodeo in 1884 was so successful that it has become an annual affair.
