The town was named for frontiersman David Crockett, who stopped here to visit family friends on his way to the Alamo. It is among the oldest towns in Texas and the site of many historic structures. It is the seat of Houston County. Nearby waterways are the Trinity and Neches rivers, plus several lakes and bayous.
The Architectural District features beautiful buildings, churches, antique shops and restaurants. Old Town Crockett features a statue of blues legend and native son Lightnin' Hopkins, across the street from the historic Camp Street Cafe.
Events include World Championship Fiddlers' Festival and Regional Steak Cook-Off in June and Christmas in Crockett in November.
