The West Pole is located on the 98th meridian in Bee Cave, Texas. Unlike the North and South Poles, it has no geographic significance; it is more of a gag for publicity, tourism, or local fun, declared by the Texas Legislature to be located “in Bee Cave, Texas...to add to the greatness of Texas”. It is the location of the annual Armadillo Day celebration (a local or Texas version of Groundhog Day) every Feb. 2nd.
