At one time Willcox was the largest beef-producing town in America and was known as the "Cattle Capital of the West." Today, the town continues to thrive as an agricultural community, especially noted for its apple orchards, u-pick farms, and now wine tasting rooms from award winning vineyards. Willcox is home to the Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Chiricahua Regional Museum and Research Center and the Rex Allen Museum. Rex Allen was a singing cowboy who recorded "Streets of Laredo" and "Crying in the Chapel." Nearby are some of the most awe-inspiring natural landscapes in the southwestern United States: Cochise Stronghold, the Chiricahua National Monument, and the Willcox Playa Bird Habitat. These and other locations make the town and environs a truly unique blend of culture, nature and western history.
