Eastland, Texas
, a premier city with a rich history and a bright future. Eastland is located on Interstate 20, just over an hours drive to the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, and has matured from an oil and gas driven agricultural and ranching community, to a bustling business and retail center for a multi-county region. We estimate Eastland's current population to be around 3,800 people.

Eastland was named for Capt. William M. Eastland, San Jacinto hero and Texas Ranger. Current area resources include oil, ranching, farming and manufacturing. Fruit, pecans, vegetables, and feed crops are also important economic drivers.

Visitors to Eastland find that Eastland has not lost its friendly atmosphere or its small-town feel. With a quality of life considered to be one of the best in the region, Eastland offers abundant parkland, a historic downtown area, hunting and fishing recreational opportunities for young and old, quality rated schools, good housing and a growing business community.

All of these elements make Eastland a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family... and a popular place to do business.

MAJOR ENHANCEMENT TO EASTLAND’S AIRPORT GOES LIVE

02/21/2017 - A new high technology state-of-the-art “Automated Weather Observation Station” (AWOS) at the Eastland Municipal Airport is now live and broadcasting real-time local weather information every minute of every day year round. Getting AWOS up and broadcasting has been a collaborative effort by the Eastland Economic Development Corporation, the Eastland Industrial Foundation, and the City of Eastland in conjunction with TxDOT Aviation Department and the Federal Aviation Administration. From the new $1.5 million “Troy Taylor” terminal and resurfaced runway to the brand new $100,000 city hangar facility, AWOS is the latest service addition to enhance the aviation experience and comfort of local, area and cross country pilots.

AWOS Project Manager and Airport Engineer with Enprotec/Hibbs & Todd of Abilene, Weldon Scrivner, said “Bringing this AWOS Station to Eastland has been a 14-month collaborative effort. When something was needed locally from land acquisition to electric service or anything else, it was accomplished quickly and decisively. Now pilots who fly into or out of Eastland can obtain up to the minute and accurate critical weather information they need in order to plan for a safe flight.”

Bode Zietz, longtime manager of the Eastland Airport said ”Now, medical and emergency aircraft such as our home based Air Evac or aircraft from major medical centers can know when it is safe to travel in and out of our airspace. They can now get real time Eastland weather stats right off the internet from wherever they are.”

“Safety…. That is the most important thing that the new AWOS brings to Eastland. We’re excited. We’ve invested a lot of resources at our airport in the last couple of years. The new weather station however is a quantum leap that brings everything together,” said Eastland City Manager Ron Duncan.

“These developments will serve to enhance Eastland’s fast developing Air Business Park which is designed to house aviation related businesses and bring new jobs to Eastland,” said Jerry Conner, Executive Director of the Eastland Economic Development Corporation.
