Rio Hondo, Texas

Situated on the eastern bank of Arroyo Colorado, Rio Hondo land promoters divided lots for a town in 1910, and sponsored a contest to name the townsite. Rio Hondo was selected, which means "deep river," and the town was incorporated in 1927. Rio Hondo is part of very fertile farmland in the Rio Grande Valley with cotton and grain as its principal crops. Mild Valley temperatures lure many winter visitors.

One of two lift-span bridges in Texas is in Rio Hondo. Built in 1953, the bridge allows barge and boat traffic to make their way to port at Harlingen.
