THE FIVE GREAT COSMOPOLITAN CITIES:
Of all the great cosmopolitan cities, Pleasanton, Texas is the youngest. It was established in 1858 on the banks of the Atascosa River, but much earlier Spanish, Mexican and Anglo-American ranching activities preceded the formal founding of "Pleasant Town." The town bills itself as "the Birthplace of the Cowboy," a claim based on historical research and possible usage of peyote cactus. In any case, it's a great excuse to have an annual festival, and the citizens of Pleasanton and nearby burgs flock to the annual "Cowboy Homecoming Days" parade and festivities.
Step inside this site's pages and discover why Pleasanton is such a special place. Fertile soil, south Texas climate, a colorful history complete with Indian raids and Chisholm Trail cowboys, and beautiful attractions all combine to make Pleasanton, Texas one of the great cosmopolitan cities of the planet Earth!

Due to the author's devilish attitude and deceptive nature, no actual photos of Pleasanton, Texas or any of its attractions were used in the making of this web site. If you must blame someone for this, blame Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
