The City of Cisco is located in the heart of the Texas Big Country, (45 miles east of Abilene and 105 miles west of Fort Worth), and built off of rich history, hardworking businesses, and a happy, friendly community. With a population of around 3,800 this central Texas town is also an ideal place to raise your family. All these reasons and more are the purpose for the recent growth this town has seen. Businesses and individuals that have relocated here are all learning what it means to be a part of a small Texas town, with a beautiful lake to the north and surrounding ranch and farm land. Cisco is a fantastic place to take your first or continuing steps in the working world. The town might be small, but the businesses and corporations are anything but.
There are many historical markers in the city of Cisco and even a couple of museums that house these stories.
