Zachary Taylor Park

In 1845, Gen. Zachary Taylor was sent to claim Texas as the 28th state. The flag, claiming such, was placed at St. Joe Island. Gen. Taylor then led his troops inland and camped under some live oak trees. Today, the campsite is a park with a gazebo, pond and butterfly garden.

At Pearl and Bay streets in Rockport.
