Concan

History:

Concan was settled about 1840 in the rugged hills of north Uvalde County. Concan was supposedly named for “coon can,” a Mexican gambling game.

Tradition:

Sunset Bat Flight – Every fall, one of the largest populations (estimated 17 million) of Mexican free-tailed bats emerge from a nearby Concan-cave and make their ascent into the evening sky. The cave is on F.M. 2690, 4.5 mi. from U.S. 83 and Texas 127 highways. Call 830-966-2320 for a guided tour and reservations (from March through October).
