Founded in 1765 around a mission that was established 16 years earlier, it was part of José de Escandón's Colony. On the banks of the Rio Grande, the town was an important riverboat shipping point until the coming of railroads and highways. The Rio Grande is no longer navigable. Homes, stores and an ancient mission resemble an interior Mexican town. Producers of the film Viva Zapata chose Roma for outdoor scenes.
