Texas's history starts about 500 million years ago – leaving incredible geologic formations and fossils remain from the Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic Eras. For centuries, the flat rock bottom of the Rio Grande at Lajitas has been used as a river crossing by ancient Indians and early settlers. In the 1890's, silver was found in nearby northern Mexico, and shortly thereafter cinnabar was found throughout the Big Bend. A 20 year mining boom occurred at the turn of the century, which led to the production of mercury, refined from cinnabar - now only incredible ghost towns remain from that era. In 1910, the Mexican Revolution ignited and the Big Bend became a danger zone for more than a decade. Raids, pitched battles and massacres erupted across the Rio Grande; straining relations between the United States and Mexico. General Black Jack Pershing and Pancho Villa were significant players of Big Bend history. General Pershing chased Villa back into Mexico near the Lajitas Trading post. In the 1980's, the town gained international attention when it elected a goat (Clay Henry) as its town mayor in an official election.
