From the Annals of Love –  In 1882, the town of Valentine in Jeff Davis County was founded when crews building the Southern Pacific Railway reached the outpost on St. Valentine’s Day.  Valentine is the only incorporated municipality in Jeff Davis County.  The town capitalizes on its name with a Valentine’s Day Celebration hosted by the Big Bend Brewing Company at the Old Mercantile Building.  This year is Local’s Night with a lineup that includes Doug Moreland Band, The Doodlin’ Hogwallops, and Beebe & Carrasco.

From the Annals of Coincidence –  In 1882, the town of Valentine in Jeff Davis County was founded when crews building the Southern Pacific Railway reached the outpost on St. Valentine’s Day.  Valentine is the only incorporated municipality in Jeff Davis County.  The town capitalizes on its name every year with the West Texas Valentine’s Day Celebration hosted by the Big Bend Brewing Company which draws upward of 1000 lovers some years.  The headliner this year will be Tejano legend Little Joe y la Familia.  The U.S. Post Office also does a landmark business cancelling letters and cards.
