History on a Pinhead

The town of Angeles received a post office in 1910 which was later moved to Orla although no date is available.

Nothing remains of the town except the sun-baked antique sign (above) photographed by Barclay Gibson in February of 2009.


Photographer's Note:
Angeles was in the northwest corner of Reeves County, 43 miles NW of Pecos and 6 miles NW of Orla on US 285. My map shows the town to be on the east side of the road by the railroad, since removed. The only remnant of the town now is the sign on the west side of the road. - Barclay Gibson
