Texas City sits on the southwestern shore of Gavelston Bay. It's about seven miles from Gavelston and eleven miles from the Gulf of Mexico. It was founded in 1891 by three brothers from Duluth who recognized its potential as a major port. Several shippers soon joined in establishing the port, and by 1893, the population had grown to 250. As time went on, Texas City saw the building of a twenty-five-foot water channel, the opening of a customs house, railroad connections, and expansion of warehouses and docks. By as early as 1905, the city had transformed into a very attractive port. As a matter of fact, between 1904 and 1910, ships using the docks increased from a mere twelve to a whopping 239.
Subsequent events that brought more people into the city include the stationing of troops for the Mexican Revolution, the emergence of sugar and oil refinery companies, and the establishment of a tin processing plant, just to count a few. Notably, Monsanto also established a presence here with a styrene plant. By 1950, the population stood at a whopping 16,620. Residents built Texas City single family homes to set down their roots and raise their families. As industry continued to pour into the city, the population only continued to expand.
