Alice Texas Real Estate
Alice is a city in Jim Wells County. The City of Alice was incorporated in 1888 and was known for it's large cattle industry until the discovery of oil and petroleum beneath Alice in the 1940's which caused a slight population boom. Alice is also known for an incident in 1948 involving Lyndon B. Johnson's bid for the U.S. Senate. At Alice's Precinct 13, some 202 ballots were cast in alphabetical order and all just at the close of polling. Johnson won the election by 87 votes.
Today, Alice's economy is centered on the drilling industry with more than 100 different oil field companies located around the Alice area. Alice is called the "Hub City" due to its geographical location between Corpus Christi, McAllen, Laredo and San Antonio. Alice's location between these cities makes it an ideal center for distribution. Some major oil companies in Alice are Schlumberger, Halliburton, BJ Services Company, Weatherford International, and Alice serves as the headquarters for the Grey Wolf Drilling Company South Texas division.
