Eastland, TX is a city in Eastland County, with a population around 3,900. Eastland is known for the legend of "Old Rip", a horned toad that lived many years sealed in the cornerstone of the previous Eastland courthouse built in 1897. In 1928, the current courthouse was erected, the prior cornerstone was opened, and "Old Rip" was found alive. The animal, a kind of lizard, received national publicity. It died in 1929 of pneumonia and was placed in a glass-front casket on view in the present courthouse. Eastland is located a little over 2 hours southwest of Dallas and a little less than an hour east of Abilene
