El Paso was founded by George Gibson and James Wathen. Gibson named the city "El Paso" after El Paso, Texas,[4] or from the presence of low laying Rio Grande River that allowed an open pass between two mountains[5]

In August 1975, the city became the last locality in the contiguous United States to convert its telephone service from manual switching; prior to that time, telephones in the city could not be dialed directly from any outside location, the assistance of an operator being necessary to place the call, and local telephone numbers consisted of four digits.
Estimated population is 2,778 as of 2016
