"The small town of Cotulla, Texas has just received a huge honor after being awarded an official Texas historical district marker." A ceremony commemorating the event was held Friday morning in historic downtown of Cotulla. "This is a designation that is seldom ever given to a city, so it's just an honor and privilege." Patsy Lee is the manager of Cotulla mainstreet. She says the city is known for it's rough and tough wild west feel. "Cotulla is full of wonderful history, frontier type of town." Lee says after getting this recognition, they shouldn't have any trouble getting people to move their businesses downtown. The Texas historical commission reviews more than 300 marker applications each year. Another person on hand for the ceremony was City Manager, Larry Dovalina. "We're in the process of revitalizing this area to bring another element to our dynamic economy." Dovalina admits he had not paid too much attention to the city before moving there, but is amazed by what it represents. "Since I'm from Laredo, I think it is a very charming town." They allowed our cameras in a building currently being renovated. Dovalina says this is an exciting time for the growing city. "We invite people from the surrounding areas to come in and view and look at the things we're doing."
