What Bert Has To Say About Midland Metro Area

Midland was so named as the midpoint in an otherwise empty trip between Dallas and El Paso, while Odessa received its name from homesick Russian railroad laborers in the 1880’s. The economic base is concentrated mainly in the oil and gas industry. Odessa has two higher education facilities: a small University of Texas campus brings 3500 students and there is a health science center run by Texas Tech.
