Close your eyes and transport yourself to southeast Texas…early 1800s. Imagine sun-soaked plains blanketed by herds of wild deer lazily grazing. It’s only when the nearby Galveston, Harrisburg, and San Antonio railway whistle splits the air that the four-footed locals spring into action toward the shores of Buffalo Bayou. You’re in the birthplace of Texas—Deer Park.
Gone are the deer that once roamed across this former Mexican territory, but their legacy inspired the very name of this vibrant Houston suburb. Today, Deer Park is more heavily laden with oil refineries and manufacturing plants than native fauna, but it’s the famous Lone Star State charm that it bears in spades.
History aficionados can walk in the steps of General Sam Houston at the San Jacinto Battleground Monument and Museum and feel his flare of defiance as his Texas revolutionaries fought the Mexican Army.
