ODESSA
Texas, U.S.A.
THE INTERESTING SMALL TOWN
Welcome to Odessa, Texas.
Odessa is a city in Ector County, with around 100,000 residents. In 2014, Forbes Magazine named Odessa the third fastest-growing small city in the United States much thanks to the oil industry and its many employment opportunities. Odessa was founded in 1881, and it is believed that the city was named after Odessa, Ukraine because of the resemblance in landscape. The small town was at first merely a water stop and cattle-shipping point on the Texas and Pacific Railway, but Odessa grew and became the county seat in 1891. In 1921, Odessa was incorporated as a city after the discovery of oil. Odessa may not look like much, but it is home to quite the vibrant performing arts scene. The Midland-Odessa Symphony and Chorale (MOSC) have been playing since 1962, and is the largest orchestral organization in the region. The Globe of the Great Southwest is a terrific venue on the campus of Odessa College, replicating William Shakespeare's famous Globe Theatre. At the theater, enthusiastic thespians can enjoy various plays and festivals in Shakespeare-fashion, throughout the year. Also worth a visit is the old Ector Theater, which has been remodeled into a 700-seat venue with classic movies, live-theatrical productions and concerts. Sports fans can catch an Odessa Bronchos game at the Ratcliff Stadium, or watch the Odessa Jackalopes play ice hockey at the Ector County Coliseum. History buffs should stop by the Odessa's Presidential Museum and Leadership Library, situated on the campus of the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. The facility is the only one of its kind in the United States; dedicated to the office of the Presidency, rather than one specific holder of the Oval Office. In addition, there are numerous historic sites and landmarks to visit for those who are interested, including the Parker House Museum and the Odessa Meteor Crater.
