Area code 325 serves a large area of West Texas, which includes Abilene and San Angelo. Area code 325 is located in the Central Time Zone and covers 29 counties of Texas. Area code 325 was put into effect on April 5, 2003, and was created from a split of area code 915.

Abilene is a city in West Texas near the geographic center of the state and the county seat of Taylor County. Abilene’s climate is characterized by hot, humid summers and short, cold, and dry winters. Abilene was founded in 1881 and named after Abilene, Kansas. Abilene has a population of 117,063 and the racial makeup of the city is 75.5% White, 24.5% Hispanic, 9.6% African American, and 1.7% Asian (2010 Census). The high crime rate makes Abilene a dangerous city to reside in. Once a center of livestock and agriculture, Abilene’s economy is now centered on manufacturing, government, healthcare, and education. Abilene is home to the Dyess Air Force Base, which is the city’s largest employer. The largest annual event in the city is the West Texas Fair and Rodeo, an event that celebrates West Texas and the early days of Abilene. The main tourist attraction in the city is Frontier Texas!, a museum that allows visitors to experience the legendary Texas frontier. The Abilene Zoo is another major tourist attraction that contains over 1,000 animals and hosts educational and summer programs. The Paramount Theatre is located in downtown Abilene and features films, live theatre performances, and concerts throughout the year.

San Angelo is a city in West Texas and the county seat of Tom Green County. San Angelo is located in the Concho Valley on the Concho River. The three lakes in San Angelo are Lake Nasworthy, O.C. Fisher Reservoir, and Twin Buttes Reservoir. San Angelo’s climate is characterized by hot, humid summers and short, cold, and dry winters. Going back in history, prior to the arrival of Europeans, the area was occupied by the Jumano people. When thousands of settlers started arriving, the government established forts on the frontier to protect them from hostile threats. As a result, the United States built Fort Concho in 1867. Almost as soon as the first units arrived at Fort Concho, Bartholomew J. DeWitt founded the village of Santa Angela right outside the fort. Santa Angela became the county seat of Tom Green County in 1882 and the name was changed to San Angelo the following year. When Fort Concho was abandoned in 1889, San Angelo became a center of agriculture and trade. In the early 1900s, the United States experienced a tuberculosis outbreak; San Angelo’s dry, warm climate proved to be an effective healing factor, so many patients moved to the city for treatment. The San Angelo College (currently Angelo State University) was founded in 1928 and the Goodfellow Air Force Base was founded in 1940.

San Angelo has a population of 93,200 and the racial makeup of the city is 80.4% White, 38.5% Hispanic, 4.6% African American, and 1.1% Asian (2010 Census). Unfortunately San Angelo is a dangerous city to reside in.
