The citizens of Donna first started using the motto "The City with a Heart in the Heart of the Rio Grande Valley" to promote the city in the 1940s.
By 1945 the town had a population of 4,712 and seventy-eight businesses and continued to be a citrus and vegetable growing center.
In 1953 Donna had three gins, three wholesale groceries, hardware and farm implements dealers, a wholesale distributor for feed mills, and the Donna News.
The Donna-Rio Bravo International Bridge is located at 8000 S International Blvd. The opening ceremonies were held on Tuesday, December 14, 2010. The crossing connects Donna with the City of Rio Bravo in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. Being located in a non-congested area of the border, the crossing allows for the fastest travel to and from Mexico.
Donna Hooks Fletcher Museum
In 1903, Thomas J. Hooks moved his family to the area because of the farming potential. Railroad entrepreneur Uriah Lott named the town after Hooks' daughter.
When Donna Hooks Fletcher divorced in 1908, she received land from her father, which she turned into a prosperous produce and dairy operation. Local history is honored at her namesake facility, Donna Hooks Fletcher Museum.
Artifacts include the town's first telephone, a bar supposedly used in the 1914 Blue Goose Saloon and household appliances, including an ice box, clothes wringer wash tub and butter churn.
Prominently displayed is the Bible that Donna Hooks Fletcher held in one hand, while the other hand held a pistol, during the tense 1910s when Mexican revolutionaries raided across the nearby Rio Grande. Read about The Bandit War
