Hudspeth County, Texas Information
Hudspeth County, Texas had a population of 3,476 as of the 2010 census. The county, which was named for a state senator from El Paso, Claude Benton Hudspeth has Fort Hancock as it’s largest community, and Sierra Blanca as its county seat.
Prehistoric Jornada Mogollón peoples0 were practicing agriculture in the Rio Grande floodplain A.D. 900–1350. These people left behind artifacts and pictographs as evidence of their presence. The Rodriguez-Sanchez Expedition of 1851 encountered friendly Indians bestowing gifts upon the explorers. Antonio de Espejo expedition encountered Otomoaco Indians in the county. The Mescalero Apache frequented the area to irrigate their crops. In 1849 John Salmon “RIP” Ford explored the area between San Antonio and El Paso noting in his mapped report the productive land upon which the Mescalero Indians farmed. By the mid-17th century the Mescaleros expanded their territory to the Plains Navajos and Pueblos from the Guadalupes, and El Paso del Norte. Their feared presence deterred white settlers. In January 1870, a group of soldiers attacked a Mescalero Apache village near Delaware Creek in the Guadalupe Mountains. In July 1880 soldiers at Tinaja de las Palmas attacked a group of Mescaleros led by Chief Victorio. In August 1880, Buffalo Soldiers ambushed Victorio at Rattlesnake Springs. Victorio retreated to Mexico and was killed in October by Mexican soldiers. Two weeks later, Apaches killed seven Buffalo Soldiers, members of the famous black Tenth United States Cavalry, the demand for new routes from Texas to California caused an uptick in explorations. The San Antonio to El Paso leg of the San Antonio-California Trail was surveyed in 1848 under the direction of John Coffee Hays. Hudspeth became known as a place where travelers passed through, on their way to somewhere else. Fort Quitman was established in 1858 to provide protection for travelers. Lt. Francis Theodore Bryan camped at Guadalupe Pass while exploring a route from San Antonio to El Paso via Fredericksburg. Upon reaching El Paso in July 1849 his report recommended sink wells along the route. In July 1848, Secretary of War William L. Marcy wanted a military post established on the north side of the Rio Grande. Major Jefferson Van Horne was sent out in 1849 to establish Marcy’s goal. John Russell Bartlett was commissioned in 1850 to carry out the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Bartlett declared the Guadalupe Mountains dark and gloomy, and proposed a transcontinental railroad be built south of the peaks. Three years later, Capt. John Pope was sent to scout out a railroad route, and in the succeeding year to search for artesian water supplies. Texas Commissioner Robert Simpson Neighbors was sent by Governor Peter Hansborough Bell in 1850 to organize El Paso. The Butterfield Overland Mail and the San Antonio-San Diego Mail served the county from 1857 to 1861. These mail coaches provided a means for travelers to reach California in 27 days, if the passenger had the $200 for a one-way fare and was courageous enough to withstand the weather and dangers in route. Men from San Elizario and the other villages along the Rio Grande near El Paso had become dependent on the salt trade for their livelihoods. After the Civil War they broke a road from Fort Quitman to the Salt Basin in northeastern Hudspeth County. But Anglo politicians tried to capitalize on this trade by asserting ownership of the salt lakes and levying fees on the traders. The result was the 7-year San Elizario Salt War, which heightened tensions between Mexicans and Americans in the 1870s. Rival railway companies began competing for rights of way. The Texas and Pacific Railway and the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio Railway eventually reached an agreement to share the tracks, with several towns arising along the way. Hudspeth was formed in 1917 from El Paso. From 1992 to 2002, the county accepted over 200 tons per day of treated, dried sewage from New York City. The waste was spread over a remote site in the county. In recent times Hudspeth County has become notorious as a location for frequent drug arrests for individuals traveling east on Interstate 10 from El Paso, due to the presence of a US Border Patrol checkpoint. Several celebrities, including touring musicians Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and Fiona Apple, and actor Armie Hammer have been arrested on drug charges at this location.
The total area of the county is 4,571 square miles, almost all of which is land. It is the third largest county in Texas. Part of Guadalupe Mountains National Park lies in the northeast corner of the county. The county is also home to two nationally protected areas: Guadalupe Mountains National Park and McKittrick Canyon. Adjacent counties are:

This has been the worst decision we made in going to this place when I first went they all seemed very nice and welcoming they helped as fast as possible and when they needed the bond money they did anything to go there way to get it and now that my husband case is dismissed they have been giving us the run around regarding the check they keep us waiting on hold when we call and they state that the owner is never at the office DO NOT GO THERE!! It’s been 9 months and still have not received our money back… They are so irresponsible and always with lies every time we call……
I do not recommend this place at all. They don’t bother notifying you that you have court. My sister is in jail right now for their mistake. Poor service. Got the notice through the mail on Oct 15 that she had court on Oct 12…
Staff was courteous, helped us with our case in timely manner.
