History in a Seashell

The town (which is said to be a former Karankawa cemetery) was only developed in 1957. Intended as a resort/ marina, the plot was divided into 2,000 lots. It was incorporated in 1975 when there were 141 people residing there. The population was 624 in 1990 which increased to 1,075 for the 2000 Census.

Anyone wishing to share any interesting "Indian burial ground" or pre-development stories, please contact us.
