Living in Texas City, TX

Texas City's history goes back to 1854 when the U.S. Government constructed a lighthouse at the base of what is known today as the Texas City Dike. In 1893, two major events occurred that contributed to the development of the city: the Texas City Post Office was opened and a railroad link was established.

The city was incorporated in 1911, and residents in Texas City apartments and other homes came out to celebrate the city's centennial anniversary in 2011. Notable events occurred in the decade beginning in 2001, contributing to the quality of life for Texas City residents including the opening of the Sanders-Vincent Community Center, the construction of the Matthew T. Doyle Natatorium, a major renovation of the Lowry Center and the creation of the Dollar Bay Conservation Birding Trail.

According to the city website, Texas City has survived a number of disasters, including the explosion of the S.S. Grandcamp and S.S. High Flyer in 1947, two world wars in which it played a significant role, two economic depressions and at least five major hurricanes.
