Fresh air, clean water, accessibility, and low cost energy make Eastland an attractive place to live and work. But so do things like the breadth of medical resources, the vast array of services for businesses and people. They all contribute significantly to the community's high quality of life.

The resources that will be required for Eastland to continue its current quality of life well into the future are in abundance. Careful planning by city fathers has laid the foundation for sustainable, affordable development for many decades to come.

We're fortunate that the resources both people and businesses need today and will require in the future don't have to be imported from other regions.


Quality of Life
Eastland is a great place to raise a family, with a population base of almost 3,800 residents. A self contained town with medical amenities, sports for all ages, quality schools and competitive business environments all serve to make Eastland an complete place for a short stay or for a life-time.

Beginning with the approaching of School, Eastland Pee-Wee football kicks off with a program for kids in the first through 6th grades. While the tackle football groups are mainly for boys, there are many opportunities for young ladies to be involved in cheerleading, jazz and tap programs.

Early fall kicks off the Eastland Little Dribblers leagues for both girls and boys and they play on Saturdays during the fall and early winter. Baseball and softball are not far behind and both leagues offer T-ball from ages 4 up to 18. Along with the local golf courses and lakes, there is a complete offering for the sporting enthusiast year round. If hunting and fishing are your hobbies, Eastland County offers many opportunities for wild game hunting. Additionally, fishing at Lake Leon is some of the best in the area.

The local school system works hard each and every year to offer a quality education to all of the students and does so without losing the hometown friendliness that one would associate with a small West Texas community.

Eastland Schools compete in the class 2AA division of athletics and each year qualify most of their teams for post-district play and in addition, provide excellent opportunities in band, one act play, Vo-Ag and FCCLA competitions as well as high quality participation in all of the UIL academic contests offered each year for students to better themselves and improve on the already excellent educational opportunities featured on the exemplary campuses in the district. Eastland County also offers an excellent 4-H program for year round emphasis on raising and showing animals.

There are many excellent service clubs from the Kiwanis, Lions, and Rotary Clubs as well as civic clubs for women and programs for the elderly such as Meals on Wheels. The Downtown business area centers around the historic County Courthouse and the restoration project on other historical buildings and the Majestic Theater, fully restored, shows current first run movies to liven up the weekends. You get old town feel with old small town prices and the movie quality of the big city without all of the hassle.

Throughout the community, there is a friendly association of churches of all denominations that work together on many benevolence projects to help and provide for the less fortunate in the community. From its quite historic neighborhoods to its thriving business center, forward thinking people are keeping Eastland on the cutting edge of growth… and yet planning it in such a way as to not lose its small town West-Texas flavor. The opportunities for jobs and business abound and the full service airport makes Eastland a quality town to live in and enjoy. It is only and hour and twenty minutes from the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, and that is close enough.
