Eden, Texas

Eden was established in 1882 and named for Frederick Ede, upon whose land the town was platted, Eden is 19 miles east of the geodetic center of Texas. Markers in town honor two local sons. General Ira C. Eaker, aviator in World War I, pioneered in-flight refueling technology and commanded the Eighth Army Air Force in World War II. General Earl Rudder, was the leader of the Army Rangers who scaled 100-foot cliffs and silenced German artillery during the D-Day invasion during World War II.

Today, Eden boasts a shady town square that features shops, antique malls, a museum and a modern library. Visitors can also find a municipal golf course, deer and turkey hunting, and nearby O.H. Ivie Reservior for fishing and boating.
