    History in a Pecan Shell

    Named after the Battleground of the Texas Revolution, began in 1941 when Frank Sharp built a subdivision to house steel mills and war industry workers. After the war the population was 3,800 and the town incorporated.

    Jacinto City holds the state record for the number of chambers of commerce in operation at one time. In the 1950s they had three separate chambers.

    Most residents were refinery workers and their children attended Houston and Galena Park schools.
