Pegues Hurst Ford Serving Longview, TX 

One of the best places to live in Texas is Longview, a city full of history and diversity that we are proud to serve every day at Pegues Hurst Ford.Founded in the early 1870s, the town was named "Longview" because of the impressive view Ossamus Hitch Methvin, Sr.-the owner of the nearby railroad-enjoyed from his house, located on what is now Center Street. 

A year later, Longview was the first community in Gregg County to become incorporated. Though it started as a rough, even violent, railroad town, it quickly grew into a mature city. The weekly New Era newspaper began publishing in 1872 and the construction of more nearby railroads helped the economy grow at a rapid pace. By 1882, Longview was home to numerous churches, sawmills, schools, a bank, planning mills, a foundry, a machine shop, an opera house that could seat 450, and more. 

The population increased steadily until the early 1910s thanks to the Longview Electric Light and Power Company and the construction of municipal waterworks. 

But enough about history.
