The present Texas–New Mexico boundary placing El Paso on the Texas side was drawn in the Compromise of 1850.

El Paso County was established in March 1850, with San Elizario as the first county seat.

When the Spanish arrived, the Manso, Suma, and Jumano tribes populated the area.El Paso remained the largest settlement in New Mexico until its cession to the U. in 1848, when Texas took possession of it with the Compromise of 1850.The Texas Revolution (1836) was generally not felt in the region, as the American population was small; not being more than 10% of the population.However, the region was claimed by Texas as part of the treaty signed with Mexico and numerous attempts were made by Texas to bolster these claims.However, the village which consisted of El Paso and the surrounding area remained essentially a self-governed community with both representatives of the Mexican and Texan government negotiating for control until Texas irrevocably took control in 1846.
