Additional Details:
Founded in 1881, it grew up sedately, its settlement by Methodists prevented the opening of any saloons until 1898. Today an oil town with wide paved streets and shaded by trees, its greenery contrasting with the encircling barren treeless plains. Odessa was the home of "Old Ben" Sublett, who owned a mystery mine. The details of the story are colorfully told in J. Frank Dobies; "Coronado's Children."
