Historical Significance

Abilene was established in 1881 after the arrival of the Texas and Pacific railroad. In 1940, Camp Barkley, an army training base, was established briging over 20,000 soldiers to the Abilene area during World War II.  After its deactivtion in 1945, Abilene began planning for another military base.  In 1956, Dyess Air Force Base was dedicated and has  been a very big part of the Abilene community ever since.  Dyess is home to the first B-1B bomber and there is an aircraft museum there.
