Travel back in time on the San Antonio-El Paso Road

FORT DAVIS, TX – Discover a forgotten road. Plotted by the army during the California Gold Rush in 1849, San Antonio-El Paso Road stretched 650 miles over West Texas and allowed trade and settlers to move west over the Edwards Plateau and Trans-Pecos regions. It served as a mail route to San Diego and vanished when railroads became the primary mode of overland transportation in 1882. Today it links historical sites: Casa Navarro, Landmark Inn, Fort Lancaster, Fort Davis, and Magoffin Home. Visit http://www.thc.texas.gov/historic-sites
