The first major construction in San Angelo, was Fort Concho, which was founded where two forks join to form the Concho River, beside a border military post in 1866. San Angelo was laid out three years later. It was a rough of cattle trails and overland traffic in the 1870's and started growing after the arrival of the railroad in 1888.

Nowadays it is an important wool and mohair market and a trade and shipping point for a wide area of sheep, goat and cattle ranches, irrigated farms and oil and natural gas fields. Meat and dairy items, shoes, leather goods, oil field equipment and stone, clay and glass items are also produced. Fort Concho has been restored and houses a museum. San Angelo is home to Angelo State University, Goodfellow Air Force Base and Lake Nasworthy, which serves as the municipal reservoir. San Angelo Reservoir is also in the vicinity.

Accommodation and restaurants are available in town. San Angelo is in western Texas, 370 km southwest from Dallas and 2280 km southwest from Washington D.C.
