About El Paso, The Crossroads of the Southwest
El Paso, Texas sits at the juncture of three states and three cultures. With over 400 years of history the El Paso community is infused by the unique blend of Mexican, Anglo-American, and Native American cultures. Situated on the border with Mexico and New Mexico, El Paso features a scenic desert landscape and a friendly population.
Known as the pass to the north the community was founded over four centuries ago as an outpost for traders and missionaries in the west. The convenient breach in mountain ranges and water source from the Rio Grande encouraged growth in the community’s early history. In modern times El Paso’s dynamic growth has been credited to the development of an integrated international trade region with Juarez, Mexico long before free-trade zones and global markets flourished.
El Paso, Texas and Cd. Juarez, Mexico form a twin city metroplex creating the largest border community in the world with a population of nearly two million. This truly independent binational community provides a unique forum for trade and commerce.
The city’s rate of growth from 2000 to 2010 was 15.2%, and the county’s rate of growth was 17.8%, according to a study conducted recently by the U.S. Census Bureau.
