Ozona is a census-designated place (CDP) in and the county seat of Crockett County, Texas, United States.[3] The population was 3,436 at the 2000 census. It is the only Census Bureau-recognized community in Crockett County, which is named for Colonel Davy Crockett, a hero of the Alamo.[4]

Ozona is called the "Biggest Little Town in the World". It is located on Interstate 10 some eighty-two miles southwest of San Angelo. Crockett County is one of the nation's leading producers of wool and mohair. It is situated in the Edwards Plateau region in the western edge of the Texas Hill Country. Hunters come to Ozona in search of white-tailed deer, javelina, and game birds.[4]

The county was organized in 1891 under a giant oak tree, which still stands and shades the historical marker describing the event. The Davy Crockett Monument is a large statue in the City Park on the town square.[4]

Texas also has a "Heritage Appreciation Monument" which honors pioneer families who came to settle the land. There is a three-story Crockett County Museum at 404 11th Street, which features a blacksmith shop, ranching artifacts, and a wool/mohair room. A scenic drive from Ozona to Lancaster Hill, west on Texas State Highway 290, provides a panoramic view of the Pecos River Valley.[4]
