Anthony, Texas

Anthony is one of Texas' newest towns, incorporated in 1952. Anthony is also a two-state city on Texas 20, which in this area follows the historic route of El Camino Real, Spain's royal highway that connected Mexico with Texas, California, and Florida. In 1598, Don Juan de Onate and a band of colonizers traveled this road to settle Santa Fe, at a rate of only 40 miles in 15 days. The economy is now keyed to food canning and packing, cotton, and a federal correctional institution.
