This San Patricio County seat was established in 1885 as a station on the San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railroad. The greatest population surge came in 1909 when several large ranches divided into smaller farms, creating a diversity of agriculture that is still apparent. Includes a small park with picnic area and the 300-acre Rob and Bessie Welder Park with playground, golf, swimming pool and small lake. East of U.S. 181 north.
