The town of Iraan was named for Ira and Ann Yates, owners of the ranch upon which the town was built in 1926-1927. It's pronounced "Ira-Ann."
Iraan was an oil boom town, and developed quickly after the discovery of the gigantic Yates Oil Field in 1926, which is now owned by Kinder Morgan.
I think this is the only public car wash in town. I just loved the sign...especially that little white dot at the tip of the spear. It lets you known exactly where you are in far, desolate West Texas. I have no idea what the name of the car wash is.
