J. Griffis Smith
The town traces its roots to Texana, settled in 1824. When the railroad bypassed Texana, the town moved to its current site and was founded in 1884. It was named for the middle daughter of the founder of the New York, Texas and Mexico Railroad. It is the seat of Jackson County. Edna became the Flag City with a 1968 resolution to fly the U.S. flag until "an honorable peace had been secured in Vietnam." It continues to use the Flag City motto.
Edna is along the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. www.tpwd.state.tx.us/wildlifetrails."
